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.

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

Warm and beautiful tone.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: A refined warm tone and so comfortable under the fingers.

Cons: With gut G, D and A, it does not allow the guts to resonate to their fullest extent. Replacing the Gold Label E after 2 weeks with a Jarger Forte E, it sounded like a totally different violin. Perhaps synthetic cored strings go better with the Pirastro E.

Works well with Dominant. Reliable.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I use this E string with dominant G, D and A. It has a good projection, nice ring and very rarely whistles. Never broke any of those either and always lasted as long as my complementary dominant.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other: Great service from Stringzone as usual. Good packaging and fast service.

Good as ever
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: A lovely, lyrical sound, avoiding the harshness of some E strings

Cons: Is there new labelling? I have had Pirastro Gold before. I know you also do a 'real' gold string but thought they were under the same lable. Seperating them has confused me a bit. No complaints about the string itself though

Excellent E string

Pros: Excellent sound, blends well with other strings.

Cons: Slightly harsh on the open string.

Other: I put this on with a set of Obligatos and I've been very pleased with it. The sound is consistently bright and clear without being shrill and it blends well with the other strings. My only criticism is that when playing the open string (which is very common in fiddle music) it sounds a little too harsh; most E strings are like that to some extent, but it felt particularly prominent on this one compared to others. The string lasted about a month of playing a couple of hours every day before starting to go dead, which I think is reasonable. I'll be replacing it with something else, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this string.
