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.
Over the years i have purchased many different makes of strings from the lower end of the market to some quite expensive sets. In my opinion the D'Addario Pro-Arte medium tension set i purchased recently are certainly one of the best to date. They have a warm rich tone, with very short break in time, and once settled seem to remain very stable. I can definately recommend them as excellent quality for a mid-range priced product.
Ich hatte diese Saiten ausgewählt, da meine Violine zuvor relativ schrill und laut mit den Saiten von Thomastik Dominant waren. Die E-Saite hatte mit den Dominant auch nicht so gut zu den anderen gepasst. Durch die neuen Saiten von D'Addario hab ich nun einen stimmigeren,dunkleren und wärmeren Klang meiner Violine. Nur eines hab ich auszusetzen: Der Wechsel von der D zur A Saite ist vom Ton weniger geschmeidig als bei meinen vorherigen Saiten. Doch bei den vorherigen war der wechsel von der A zur E Saite immer sehr unangenehm. Könnte auch an der Qualität der Violine liegen. Von mir bekommt das Produkt eine Empfehlung.
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 used this brand for many years (~8), and I am perfectly happy. The response is fantastic and tonally fits all my violins quite well. The reason this only gets four stars is because these strings aren't for every violin. Strings are the most important thing you can do for your violin, and so knowing what your violin needs or lacks in tonal quality, or just what you think a violin should sound like really affects a choice in strings.
That being said, these strings are fantastic, especially for the price point. The have a WONDERFUL lower register, and this in my opinion is the best thing about them. They are warm and rather subdued (not quiet, just not vibrantly in your face, if you will). My violins both, as much as I love them, really can use some help on the lower end, and these strings really help that considerably.
On the flip side, they don't add a lot to the high register. In other words, they aren't bright, which my violins produce enough of on their own. So with that in mind they bring the right mix to the party, so to speak, and really "even up" my violins.
Lastly, they are a comfortable violin in two ways. They are SUPER easy and quick to "settle in", meaning that they don't take weeks to hold their tune. Secondly, they feel nice under the finger, almost soft. I think it's the nylon core, but I don't know. All I know is they don't "hurt" to play for extended amounts of time.
Many people prefer Dominant by Thomastik as the go to string that has nice balance, but I think these are every bit as good, maybe even better, for quite a bit less.
For me, they are five star strings, but everyone literally is different. My advise is to listen to your violin and find out what it needs and then purchase accordingly.
I have used these a few times. The G & D are decent producing a deep rich sound on more than one of my violins. The A sounds a bit "tin-like" and I have replaced it with Thomastik Dominants on both violins with this experience. I prefer a deeper sound. The value is good for the money. These are good intermediate strings or spares, and the lower registers are decent. If you want a broader sound in the higher registers (A & E) go with a Thomastik or Pirastro. These are fine for beginners to intermediate students.
