Very good, but maybe not fit for all violins.

Pros: Good sound, which mixes well with the remaining strings. Not too shrill, but present.

Cons: Didn't last long. My first one broke by itself after 40 days, because of corrosion (and i am a manic cleaner, and my sweat is not acid). In a particular new violin i own it sounds good, but it chokes a bit the whole response of the violin. I tested 2 different .27 gauge. Next time i'll try a .26, for a bit less tension.

Excellent value for money

Pros: Excellent string for the price. Good clear sound and no whistles!

Cons: Needs to be replaced after a month if you want to avoid a metallic quality in the sound.

Goldbrokat E string for violin mellow singing tone

Pros: Very nice mellow E string, tamed the violin a lot compared to the steel E string supplied in the quality perlon set I was using.

Cons: Nothing so far, but only about a month old so too early to say if the tone will last.

High quality for a low price!

Pros: I don't think I'm a particularly apt judge as others have said it's much better than the Dominant E string, whereas I can't tell much difference - but it's certainly at least as good, and is indeed perhaps a bit less tinny. For the price, definitely can't complain!

Cons: None that I know of.

Exceptional value and sound quality

Pros: Having tried many expensive "E" metal strings, I have found that these offer superb value because they have a sweet sound, respond well and are cheap enough to renew every month. Manufacturing quality is consistent.

Cons: I am not sure that they would retain their sound quality after many months playing.

Other: Exceptional value. I will continue to play on Lenzner Goldbrokat E until someone introduces me to a better string that also offers outstanding value.

Goldbrokat E string--a fine string at a very good

Pros: This has a sweet clear tone and seems to match other string sets well. It is also cheap enough to replace regularly. I can understand why so many people choose it, especially to replace the notorious Dominant E

Cons: None--so far
