Generate a warm, soft sound without losing volume!
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: It's warm sound, it complements the aged softness that my violin generates much more than any other string I have tried. It is long lasting and far better than any other string out there.

Cons: I preferred it when they used to be sold to be stored in tubes. They are more expensive than dominants

Safe string but not convinced for solo playing

Pros: Very sweet sound and settled in immediately without any harshness. It kept its pitch well after about 4 days.

Cons: The sound is sweet but does not project well. Higher up the string the tone is not so clear.

Fine Strings.

Pros: Consistently good quaility and sound.

Cons: N/A

Other: Concerned that the fall in the value of sterling and the move to Brexit might make these strings more expensive or even unavailable in the future.

Richer tone for a modern violin.

Pros: My violin is abou 16 years old, and the tone has taken quite a long time to develop. Being a modern instrument the tone is strong but less sweet than older instruments. I chose the Obligato string for a second time because it added richness to the strong tone. I had previously tried Eva Pirrazi strings, and decided they were more suited to a sweet old violin that needed help with volume.

Cons: I had to open up the adjuster fork because I bought a ball end, and probably should have opted for a looped end.

Other: I play my violin for my own pleasure, and am really enjoying playing as the tone mellows and the right string enhances it.
