Sound quality excellent.
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: These strings improved the sound quality dramatically of my rather cheap, old and battered violin. I would certainly recommend this set to others I and intend to use these strings again next time.

Cons: The full price, (without special offers etc), is rather high for my limited funds, - but you do get what you pay for.

Other: Very good, quick, accurate service from thestringzone.

Good, cheap, reputable.

Pros: Excellent synthetic strings. The "New Formula" introductory price has been going now for 10 years or so. My first violin came with Tonicas (old formula, aluminium D) on it. The new formula ones (silver D), when they appeared, sounded much better and I saw no reason to use anything else.

Cons: I found that the Tonica "silvery steel" E-string was easy to make whistle, but this is not so noticeable on my granddaughter's 1/8 and now 1/4 violins. On my full-sized violin I usually use a Lenzner Goldbrokat E-string instead; this has never whistled despite being still, and by a long way, the cheapest well-regarded E-string you can buy.

Other: I always buy the complete set. Since I replace the E-string with a Goldbrokat I tend to accumulate unused Tonica E-strings, and I get brownie points by donating them to my teacher's emergency consumables collection.
