Improves confidence playing high
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: I always dreaded going up the finger board on the e string, even at grade 8 but since being the Gold Label e my confidence has improved greatly and I find myself being much more comfertable playing higher notes. Before getting the Gold Label e, higher notes always sounded squeaky and the clarity decreased as the frequency increased but the new string changed this. It produces a very clear and sweet sound.

Cons: I found that the string crossings on to the e string squeak a little. But to be honest that's probably just down to my technique but I didn't have that problem before.

Other: Blends in well with an Evah Pirazzi set -it has the same power.

Favorite E

Pros: I have tried the following "famous" Es: Gold Label, Amber, Tzigane, Goldbrokat and Peter Infeld Platinum. They are all good and there can be no actual reasoning about rating them. It comes down to just pure taste. I prefer the tone of the Gold Label to the sweeter Amber or Tzigane, or the brilliance of Peter Infeld Pt. The Gold E gives me the nice ring of good drinking glasses and doesn't mess with the rest of the strings (I am looking at you, PI-Pt)

Cons: Nothing.

Worth buying.

Pros: Easy to fit and once tuned has needed very little tweaking to keep it in tune. Compliments the Dominant strings well, and has a less strident tone, in my opinion.

Cons: None

smooth,sweet rounded edge to the tone

Pros: Fitted in very nicely with the Dominant strings on G D A,have never liked the Dominant E string as very harsh and unforgiving but this Pirastro gave a nice smooth,sweet rounded edge to the tone

Cons: none
