Evah Pirazzi,the string iv'e been waiting for.
10 out of 11 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.
2 out of 2 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
3 out of 5 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.

Because you're worth it...…...

Pros: I decided to go for a more expensive set of strings in the hope that they would help me to produce a more pleasant sound. They have certainly helped,although, of course, quality of sound is dependent on many factors , and involves a lot of hard work.

Cons: None

Other: It's worth it if you can afford them. How long they last is too early for me to tell.
