A good string at a good price
2 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: I like these strings, they settle in quickly and have a powerful tone. They're a touch less sweet toned than Dominants and are also thinner under the fingers

Cons: It is a gut reaction (pardon the pun) but I don't think they will last as long as a set of Dominants, but I could be proved wrong

Decent sounding set of strings at a good price
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Using these strings an a Fender electric violin. Tone is surprisingly good from these relatively inexpensive strings.

Cons: The bow can be a bit 'slippy' along the string - probably because they are smoother strings than I am used to but still they are fine.
