Interesting new strings, excellent projection.
15 out of 15 found the following review helpful

Pros: Full sound, bring out the best in the instrument. Good for playing in a folk band as they project really well. Clean even tone.

Cons: Strings took a couple of weeks before they held their tuning. The E string has a tendency to squeak if not careful with bowing.

Other: Overall like these strings and will be trying another set

Nice Strings.
6 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Nicest synthetics that I've used. Clear bright tone. Not too thick, so kinder to the fingers. Also I like the company's recycling scheme- I haven't used it, but nice idea.

Cons: No cons.

Other: Great service from string zone. Friendly, helpful and fast!

Warm easy playing long lasting string.
5 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: I've used these strings for years and found that they give a warm mellow sound but with a bit of bite when I want it. Just washday I want. They play easily and consistently and they last very well. Tried several other strings in the past but like these the best.

Cons: The E string whistles a bit for me. Really fixed by replacing with the rather cheap and effective thomastic special e

Warmer and fogiving
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Started playing late in life. I needed a challenging hobby and I found one. Got to grade 4 and I decided I'd rather play fiddle style in open mike evenings than spend my remaining years trying to master harder pieces.. Decided I needed some more forgiving strings. Karneol are obviously a lot cheaper than Dominants and the like. Always thought the Dominants were very good, but the low price of the Karneols encouraged me to give them a go. I don't have golden ears but to my mind the Karneols are warmer. Bought a second set for my other fiddle.

Cons: Nothing really. Take a day or two to settle in.
