Not a bad lower-tension string
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: As stated elsewhere, these lower-tension and warmish strings seem good for my new, handmade Chinese violin, which the Evah Perazzis 'strangled' (being high-tension, with a 'rounded' sound, lacking warmth). The sound BOUNCES out of the d now - perhaps the best d string I've heard.

Cons: The overall sound, is a little squeaky, particularly the e, which is not as high quality as gold es.

Easily ordered and quick response
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Good midddle level string. Well made, easily fitted and tone is quickly excellent with little playing in time.

Cons: Take a few days to stretch to working length, so require frequent retuning, but this is true of any new string I have bought before.

Other: Delivered quicky, and as ordered first time.
