Definitely worth a try especially at less than £30
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Good price and quite nice strings. Quick response and lively bright sound. Nice even tension, tone and volume across the four strings. I particularly like the clear tone of the G & D strings that allows double stopping to remain clear. The E also has a nice tone.

Cons: The A string could be a tiny bit less strident particularly when played open. The strings with the exception of the E haven't quite settled after 3 weeks.

Other: I have almost always always used Dominants which I will probably return to. I had the Evah Pirazzi on previously which never stayed in tune and tonally didn't suit my fiddle. Tonica strings haven't made anything other than a rubbish fiddle player!!

Really please I switched whole set :o)
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely tone, very competetively priced. Very impressed with speedy delivery too - thank you.

Cons: Nothing really

Other: I prefer to fine tune with adjusters rather than pegs. G D A too thick to use with adjusters I had ...but not a problem as they've held tuning well.

Good , but could be better
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other: My experience is that these strings neither feel nor sound as good as their rival: Dominant. Maybe it's the violin and maybe it's my ear, but I'm definitely going back to Dominant.

great strings at a great price
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: I am very happy with these strings. I have used only G, and E strings so far and I am very pleased with their quality. The sound is very pleasant and warm. It looks like they will serve for a good while. And the price is great too...

Cons: Can't think of any.

Other: These are my first strings I have ever bought after the strings that came with my violin started to brake. I will be happy to buy it again in the future :-)

Tonica--a good alternative to Dominants
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: I like these strings--They are slightly thinner under the fingers than Dominant. The "e" is certainly better. I think the tone warms up eventually whereas Dominants have it there all the time. On the violin on which I have put them, I think that individual notes sound clearer, but this may simply be that they match the instrument better

Cons: I found them strident at first, but they have settled down to a more pleasant warmth. It's a gut feeling (pardon the pun) but I do not think they will last as long as Dominants, but they have not been on long enough to tell.

Other: As a set they blend in well with other instruments using different varieties of strings

The sound, the feel and the price is very good.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: This is a very nice set of strings at a very reasonable price, bought for an old 3/4 violin. They feel silky under the fingers.

Cons: They have taken a little while to settle in but I'm not sure how much practice my pupil does.

Other: Arrival of the set of strings came very quickly.
