Very distinctive strings

Pros: I got the strings hoping for a darker quieter sound. They really do sound quieter and the tone is very pretty and colourful when played with a specific bow. The distinctive characteristic of the bow is that it has less hair than others.

Cons: When played with my usual bow, the strings sound screechy and hairy.

Other: I have rated these as 3 because the strings are described as lower tension, but when I received them during the heat of July 2018, they went on so tight that I could not tune them up to pitch. When the luthier tried, the bridge fell over. I don't know does this mean they are more vulnerable than other strings to extreme weather conditions.

Violino Strings Warm and True

Pros: The strings were new to me. TI thought I'd try them on one of my alternative fiddles. The tension is lower than most and the sound is warm. They also maintain pitch very well. The price was good too.

Cons: None

Good strings for my student violin

Pros: These made the Stentor Student One that I was using a lot more playable. Much more forgiving and mellow than the standard strings. They stayed in tune very well.

Cons: None

Expressive but impact on tone limited

Pros: They seem more expressive than the Tonica strings that they replaced.

Cons: None

Other: I thought I'd try these to give more depth to a violin with a very bright, not to say shrill, tone. I'm not sure whether they have done this exactly, although they do seem to give more character.

Information and choice of strings appreciated.

Pros: All strings good tone and stable except aluminium A. Very responsive steel E. Fiddle is Thompson ,1870.

Cons: Just the A string. I fitted this string to a new instrument with the same result. Lack of stability when played.
