Good, but costly.
6 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: Baroque instrumental music is very much a niche corner. For string players who wish to take the final step and go fully baroque it is essential to have the right equipment - and that, of course, means a baroque setup instrument with the right strings. Pirastro Chorda are first class. They produce a warm, distortion-free tone that remains even across the entire range, both pitch and dynamic, of the instrument. This, however, comes at a price. Look after them and they will last well, but don’t expect them to have the life span of modern-style strings.

Cons: The treble strings are un-knotted. It's not a major problem, but I can't see why they don't provide the knot-and-loop that are on the bass strings.

Smooth strings that work well
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Considerably cheaper than bespoke makers strings. Very smooth sound.

Cons: Single lengths on all strings. Some competitors (Savorez/Aquila) double lengths of upper strings so can be cheaper.

Other: A good all round option
