Description

Unique featured E string aimed at solving the problems associated with conventional strings. Made from a special alloy with a spiral design which increases the elasticity to produce a warm sound free of whistles and metallic overtones. (Manufacturer's description)

Now available in a design for tailpieces with integrated fine tuners. String features a unique spiral coil between the ball and the bridge.

Using a loop end E? The use of a protector to prevent the tuner hook breaking the string is essential with loop end E strings. We cannot accept claims for strings broken by the adjuster hook. Click here to purchase this item.

A new idea works
13 out of 13 found the following review helpful

Pros: There are already many good E strings on the market, but this is a new idea that works. The medium tension is perhaps best for private practise, private chamber music, and blending in at orchestra. It's a warm tone that is almost Baroque. It is a refreshing change from other E strings, but if you are thinking of performance, projection, and audience perspective, you might try the the forte version, and even that is not as loud as Pirastro EP. Excellent E strings that everyone should try. Hope we see further development for us to try out. The medium tension has a coil spring that straightens out as you wind up the string, and the forte version, instead has a wavy line in the same place.

Cons: None. A very exciting new idea.

EXCELLENT WARCHAL E STRING
8 out of 9 found the following review helpful

Pros: I WAS INTRIGUED TO TRY WHAT APPEARS TO BE A VERY INNOVATIVE E STRING. I HAVE BEEN USING IT FOR ABOUT TWO WEEKS AND I AM VERY IMPRESSED. IT HAS A VERY CLEAR AND FOCUSED SOUND AND MORE DEPTH THAN A NORMAL E STRING. IT ALSO FEELS VERY COMFORTABLE UNDER THE FINGERS. I HAVE PREVIOUSLY USED NON WHISTLING E STRINGS WHICH HAVE MOSTLY BEEN FINE, BUT THE WARCHAL E STRING SEEMS TO ME TO BE A MORE BEAUTIFUL SOUNDING STRING.

Cons: SLIGHTLY STRANGE TO PUT ON BECAUSE OF THE " SPRING " NEAR THE TAIL PIN, BUT THIS IS ONLY A INITIAL HINDERANCE. I WOULD HAVE QUITE LIKED TO HAVE TAKEN THE PLASTIC BRIDGE PROTECTER OFF THE STRING, THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE, BUT I PUSHED IT ON TO THE TO THE WINDING NEAR THE LOOP AND THIS HAS BEEN FINE. ( THESE ARE NOT CRITICISMS MERELY OBSERVATIONS ).

Nice
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Easy to play, soft to the touch and no tramlines on the fingers. Maintains same tone all the way to the top A (the one past the harmonic E two octaves above the open E string). Similar feel to the gold Infeld Red E string. It is easy on the ear and very pleasant with a nice rounded and mature bright tone.

Cons: Not really an against but does the coiled spring that unwinds when the peg is tightened really make a difference. I would like to try the string without its coiled spring, but that is not to be.

Other: Goldbrokats and Dominants sound like trumpets compared to the new Warchal. Much harsher but not brighter.

Warm sound.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Warm sound straight away. Seems to be playing in OK with reservation below. . Easy to fit.

Cons: It's supposed to be good at not sqeaking but so far, after 2 weeks it's not fulfilling that promise.

Other: It may play in more. Feels thin under fingers.

Excellent string in all respects.

Pros: This string was recommended to respond without any false sounds on the open E. It does just that! Don't be put off by the strange appearance of the spring. It disappears as you put it on and the string played in very quickly.

Cons: None

Other: Best I've discovered so far.

A great E string but needs balancing as a set.

Pros: A brilliant string, not for the feint hearted. Very similar to the Warchal Timbre. Goes well with Avantgarde A string and Timbre G & D.

Cons: Can't say yet.
