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 are ok for the price, not terrible or impressive. They seem somewhat crudely made, the windings feel rough under the fingers. For a few dollars more, the Pirastro Violinos might be a better choice for a mellow sounding string set. They seem to produce a richer more interesting tone.
2nd pair I bought b/c honestly nylon is a buzz word. First pair almost all the strings snapped w/in 1-3 months. Thought it was my bow wearing it down quicker so I got a new one, used the ol' D'Addario Preludes and after revisiting them after trying synthetic/synthetic core strings I think it still sounds better.
Got the second pair, I know my bow has good response and sticks to the preludes well. Slapped the 2nd pair of this brand on, gave it a few weeks to settle in... looks to be wearing down quicker again, and I personally prefer the sound on more common strings.
Noticeable improvement over the strings that came with the violin. Took only a couple of days to break in. Hold the tunes well. But unfortunately the E string broke in less than two weeks of use, when I was tuning it. Maybe I used excessive force. But it is the first string to break during tuning in two years of my playing with violins. It gives me doubts in the strength of these strings.
I tried these strings on a friends advice. They are decent enough strings for the price, however the tone is a bit muddy & they fall out of tune exceedingly easily. Maybe they'd be ok on a very bright, harsh student violin - but I've already switched back to my old strings (Eva Pirazzi's)
