Top notch - really worth a try.
6 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: These are my current (Feb 2020) favourite. On my instrument they are even, silky, bold but with a slight edginess which I really like. If you try them do include the 'E' which works really well along with the set and sounds round even in first position.

Cons: The D string has occasional manufacturing issues where the central core wires don't sit snugly around the ball but that doesn't seem to affect the overall performance.

Larsen Il Cannone solo ,worth a try!

Pros: The medium tension of the strings will work well with some instruments and there is an evenness across the four strings (btw. Stick with the Larsen e string!).

Cons: Rather unstable strings which I found surprising. I misguidedly thought that things would improve once the strings had settled in.

Other: Nonetheless, these are good strings which I will stick with for now!

Great-sounding, long-lasting affordable strings

Pros: Focused powerful affordable strings that last a long time, though I am blessed with non-sweaty fingers, and I wipe them down all the time.

Cons: Nothing

Mellow tone and easy to play double stops

Pros: D string is more mellow so volume and depth of tone are more balanced over the four strings. With my previous strings, the D string was much louder than the other three strings. Double stops are easier to produce.

Cons: I prefer a little more brilliance.
