Excellent sounding E string that plays easily.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I found a string set which I particularly liked on my violin, but unfortunately with these strings I found the E was slightly prone to squeaking. Rather than try a complete new set I thought I'd try one of these special E's. Turned out to be the perfect answer. Match's well with the other strings, gives a beautiful sweet tone with good projection, AND not a hint of squeaking. Given the low price, good playability, and the fact that they last really well and hold there tune, whats not to like. I've used a few of these now, and just change the E to a new one of these each time I change strings. If your not happy with your current E its worth trying these.

Cons: I find the string darkens where my fingers touch it. This happens within a few days of fitting. However it never gets any worse and dosen't effect the tone so not really a problem. I guess something in my skin reacts with the tin coating.

Fells like a quality string, lasts, stays in tune
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: A good quality string. Has more resonance and presence than a std dominant e string. Sings in the higher registers. Stays in tune. What more could you ask for?

Cons: None

Other: Looking for a string that sounds good, stays in tune, does the job and lasts, playing in sweaty pubs and clubs etc, demanding environments, Dominants are a good choice. Find that you have to play in for a few days to get the best sound. But consistent quality.
