To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are described as 'Professional Strings', but are poor quality, and I cannot imagine any professional violinist finding them satisfactory. The 'E' string snapped under pressure, where it is attached to the little ring, but I was able to fix this and reattach it. It then snapped at the other end, where it joins the peg, so that was the end of that. Of course, I've had strings break before, after much use, but never whilst being installed. The other three strings, all metal, have a harsh and piercing tone, and, quite simply, hurt my ears. I replaced them with old-fashioned gut strings, and the resultant mellow sound was a delight once again.
