1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Immediate sound, soft but bright and punchy. (I had Pirastro Flexocore and Originals before and they were too tight and edgy. Feel slightly thinner under the fingers I play a mid-C.19th English bass, flat back.

Cons: I feel I need a stark rather than medium on this string. It's a fraction slower to speak.

Good - but short lived!

Pros: Great sound - mellow yet incisive. Good projection. Speaks easily. No playing in needed. Work well on my Lott.

Cons: Don't last long! Played out in a few months of light use.
