Review of Thomastik Alphayue Violin String, G

Super inexpensive G string for folk fiddle

Pros: I bought this with its sister D string as inexpensive but good quality synthetic core strings for my outdoor knock about violin. I use this violin to play outdoors for the dance group I play for and I wanted some robust but good sounding strings that could carry. I had previously tried steel cores but the violin itself sounded a bit flat with them. These settled in quite quickly, about a couple of days of regular playing in. I am quietly impressed, will now just see how long they last. I think this could be an good alternative to Dominants which don't seem to suit any of my fiddles. The G itself has a good powerful tone.

Cons: None
