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 strings were bought for a Primavera Loreato and proved to be very good indeed.
1. Quick to settle down - so they stop going out of tune quickly - stay in tune (electronic) for about a week after a week or so. 2. Lovely tone. 3. Comfortable to the fingers. 4. Long lasting, well made and have a quality finished. 5. Very good price, considering the quality - a Dominant replacement.
3 sets (2 as backup) were bought and after racking up at least 400 hours of practice & orchestral performance over 18months, only 2 strings needed replacing, one of which ("A" string) had its wound metal coat damaged by a metal object. The only string to fail due to normal wear and tear was the "E" string, which after 16months, started "humming" to itself.
I brought these strings as they seemed to be good. I needed to change the bridge on my son's 3/4 size violin and so thought I would change the strings as well, as they were originally a mixed bag of naff sounding strings.
These strings do sound good on what is a hideously cheap violin. (I got it free though broken with a case I wanted). That said a lot of the improvement was by fitting a new bridge, and leaving it thick cut.
All that said, the violin now sounds a lot lot better than it did do before I changed anything! Certainly, in this price range, a set of strings I would recommend.
after 1 week of installation, the G string start splitting, the other strings are fine. and sound are nice, so I think the G string is not strong enough. it's good for beginners to intermediate learner.
I have tried several strings for a 3/4 violin:) these by far are the best, for tone, quality sound, and price. Better then expensive strings:) even my music teacher was impressed:) do have to rosin more often.
