Evah Pirazzi,the string iv'e been waiting for.
10 out of 12 found the following review helpful

Pros: All the precision and clarity you would expect from metal core strings but with added warmth,usually associated with gut core strings,an excellent replacement for Helicore,fantastic projection.

Cons: None so far,if they retain their bright,rich sound without going dull over a period of 6 months or so i will quite happy.

Other: I first came across these strings trying a friends newly purchased violin (a Jay Hade)the violin was excellent and i was knocked out with the strings,so much so that i bought a set for both violin and viola,i was not disappointed.I had not tried synthetic centre strings since falling out of love with Thomastik Dominant many years ago,since then i have been loyal to Helicore heavy's until now .A fantastic string with no drawbacks so far.

Perfect professional strings.
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: A full, rich sound is the default, yet capable of different timbres according to the demands of the music. Stable, and long lasting, even when used in a professional capacity.

Cons: Not cheap, but as they say, you get what you pay for.

Other: Particularly seem to suit my large ( 17") instrument.

Wonderful sound if high tension OK for you
4 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Fabulous sound - big, powerful. Quick to settle in and become stable. Hold tuning well. Obviously a quality string. I really liked them.

Cons: For me and my instrument - the tension is too high. I couldn't make them work as I wanted at about a 6th or 7th up the C and G, especially piano.

Other: Using these I became aware of the limit of string tension for me and my viola. If higher tensions work for you, they are definitely worth trying. Otherwise try Obligato or Weichal.

A good, warm sounding string

Pros: Lovely strong, warm sound. Tuning settles quickly and they wear well. If you want to make the most of your instrument, these will give projection and bring out the best.

Worth the money, even for a beginner.
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Bright, warm tone. As a 60 year old beginner, (I have been playing for less that three years) I need all the help I can get and these strings are responsive and comfortable. I don't get black marks on my fingers either!

Cons: They are rather expensive.

Other: Despite the price, I would buy them again. Price from the String Zone is very competitive, I couldn't find them cheaper anywhere.

Worth paying more for.
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Good clear sound and responsiveness - these were demonstrably superior to what I had been using for years.

Cons: More expensive, but worth paying for.

Other: There are a number of variables for quality of sound - the player, the instrument set-up, the bow, the strings and the instrument itself. Having worked on the first three, this was the next step before spending a whole lot more to buy a new viola.
