High Quality synthetic core strings.

Hydronalium on synthetic core.

Ametyst strings offer a pure and focused sound which is brighter than Karneol. Although they are intended for better instruments, they will improve the sound of all levels of violins. They have a synthetic core, and normally take approximately three days to achieve tuning stability and optimum tone quality.

Grade 8+

Definately worth a go
14 out of 15 found the following review helpful

Pros: These strings suit my violin. I wanted a brighter tone on my maggini copy. I hadn't liked dominants or pirastro evah on my violin. I would have tried eudoxa's but didnt have the spare cash. My violin is very biased on the lower end, but I now have better balance with these strings. They are very reasonably priced.

Cons: Not really a con - but they can take a while to settle in. They may not be suitable for lower quality violins, but for the price its well worth giving them a try.

Good value strings with bright clear tone
8 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: A and D have nice clear tone and very good response. All strings have a feeling of quality about them. Overall a good value set at under £25.

Cons: G is slightly less responsive and less clear on my violin (karneol G is better for me). E is good but prone to whistle - goldbrokat still my favourite.

Other: Strings improved over a 2 week period. Don't give up on them straight away if you don't immediately like them.

Very good all round strings - excellent value
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very good strings that ring well and are nice to play on. Similar to Karneols but with a bit more fuzz to the sound. This is my second set. First set lasted well - over 6 months with only minor deterioration in playability.

Cons: G string didn't respond as well to the bow for first couple of weeks but is ok now. I prefer a slightly heavier/thicker e string.

Other: They take a few weeks to stabilize but not really an issue for me. The sound seemed to improve slightly over this time as well - more resonance.

Good value
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very good value for money. A nice, mellow sound.

Cons: E string is a bit strident.

Other: The windings on the A string wore through after 6 months of use. No worse than other, more expensive strings that I have had.

A velvet brightness
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: These produce the right level of brightness that I want for my violin. The set are well balanced, the E string is not too bright. They settled in very quickly. After two and a half years of using Dominants (which served me well) I'm pleased to have made the change; they have improved the overall tone of my violin.

Cons: None.

Great value, quality strings.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I discovered Warchal Ametyst when one of my students bought an instrument set up with these strings. I was impressed with the sweet, resonant sound and since I found out a fractional size set can be bought from the string zone for such a reasonable price, I've been recommending them to all my students. I have, today, just fitted a set to a pre-loved half size Zeller which I'm sprucing up for another student. They sound great and, in my opinion, compare favourably with more expensive strings.

Cons: None
