Excellent steel strings for fiddle music

Pros: Excellent steel strings, quick response for Irish fiddle music, reasonably priced.

Cons: No cons. But don't expect them to sound like mellow synthetic strings.

Good strings for Irish trad music
6 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very fast response.

Cons: None really, but these are steel strings, so try something like Helicores if you want a warmer tone.

better sounding than synthetic core strings
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: great strings - i was reluctant to get metal strings as i thought they would sound too acute, too "heavy metal" in tone. completely the opposite - my violin sounds much more mellow, much more integrated with these strings from thomastik.

Cons: nothing i can think of

Other: don't know how you - stringzone - did it but the strings arrived in two days. this is italy!?!?

Lovelier to play than most steels

Pros: I first came across Präzisions on a new fine violin I bought and I loved them. They will reflect the quality of the wood of your violin amazingly yet keep a really good clear tone. Maybe not for you if you want to create a lot of expression and like the tonal variations you can get out of gut or nylon core strings. The luthier who sold me the violin said that he only uses these for recording, and also mentioned they are a favourite style of string for Russian violinists! So I bought these light tension ones as en experiment, not for this fine violin but a very old 1860 French violin (nothing special but a favourite instrument) as it has a very sweet tone that was getting lost with some of the posher synthetic core strings. I am not disappointed. They bed in very quickly, almost instantly and have a lot of versatility for vibrato and folk-style ornaments. You might not like the G and D if you want power but it is great for parlour playing in small groups and if you want the beauty of the wood of your instrument to come through. Such good value too! Best steel strings I've tried - I used to use Prims but have converted to these now, much smoother.

Cons: None

OK but lacking in character.

Pros: I've used these strings from time to time and generally found them to be stable and long lasting.with plenty of volume and clarity

Cons: I find the tone rather thin and hard edged, particularly with the latest set (maybe my fiddle needs attention or maybe I prefer a more warm complex sound), The very steely sound limits the range of expression in my playing compared to using say helicores..

Generally reasonable strings for the price.

Pros: I've had two sets of these strings. The first seemed virtually indestructible and lasted a long time. Quite lively and good volume.

Cons: The D string on the second set snapped after a month while playing. I don't have a particularly heavy style and in many years of playing have only ever before broken one string whilst playing.

Other: These are OK but will try something else next time.
