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 :-)

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.

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.

Warm, rounded sound at a great price

Pros: I bought these after reading some good reviews. I'm not disappointed. All four strings sound good - quite a rounded, warm sound with a bit of top end. They feel like medium to low tension. They are quick to respond. I haven't had them long enough to comment on how long they last, but they are half the price of some equivalent strings, and sound just as good, so I'm pleased to have found them

Cons: None
