Experience of covered gut violin strings
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: If you like the tone quality of gut strings then an silver wound string is a comfortable and long lasting variation. Pirastro Eudoxa are very well made and reliable. Available in various weights for all three lower strings - you will have to experiment to find, for each of the three, the one that suits your violin, its set up and your playing (and your ear), but once you know this then the Eudoxa make gives very consistent strings over the long term (decades in my case). Be aware however that gut string are sensitive to moisture and temperature even when finely silver wound as these ones are. The sound will vary in different conditions - and moisture in your fingers will also cause some change. Dry and cool circumstances tend to harden the quality of sound; more humid and warmer conditions can be very rewarding. Also remember that as the core is gut - they will eventually break with use - not dramatically so as the winding controls the moment. Usually a break occurs in the case and after quite some usage. I have never had a new or relatively new string break. You are paying for and receiving a very high level of quality control and consistency with these new strings. However it is certainly advisable with gut string to also have a spare and although Stringzone have always given me an extremely fast and reliable service that is not really the answer when the string eventually lets go just before a concert. Finally, gut strings stretch so a new one will take a day or so to settle. I suppose the best prepared player would also keep in the case a part used spare which would ease this problem at important moments when performing. Stringzone's little leaflet on new string fitting and usage is worth reading on the correct tensioning up of new strings.

Lovely sound; easier to make project than D
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely rich sound. Comfortable to play on and helped partially eliminate my wolf note. Blends very well with other strings and has many colour and dynamic possibilities, more so than the D string. It is easier to find the correct bow pressure to use for this string, and the intonation is very forgiving compared to synthetic strings.

Cons: Again, you do have to work a bit to project the sound, but not as much as with the D string, and you are bound to be pleased with your efforts!

Quality string but with gut drawbacks

Pros: Lovely tone and feel.

Cons: Very changeable and hard to keep in tune - I play a few times a week and it seems to need adjusting during each period in which I play and has done so for some time. Love gut strings but beginning to wonder if they are worth the pain!

Pros: Good stability (for gut core); lovely sound and not too much stress on the instrument.

Cons: Shame the coiled ones don't have that little tag the straight ones have, so you can put them in your string tube already tagged!

Other: Been using these for decades. Have used/use Synoxa on one instrument, but for richness of sound find Eudoxas to be the best (for me).
