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.
i bought the more expensive pro-arte last time but they only lasted 2 months so i bought these for less then half the price so i was expecting them to sound a bit harsh but i cant really tell the difference, maybe a touch brighter but that might be because they're new, so if there is a difference then it must be very subtle, maybe a professonal could tell. ill be sticking to these from now on and save money, i play bluegrass fiddle not classical violin
I bought these as I wanted to experiment with different strings, having had some issues with strings twice the price. Very pleased with the sound I'm getting. Be aware this will vary from instrument to instrument. I thought to try these as I had recently bought a D'Addario tuner which gave me the impression this company market quality products. At this price these string are definitely worth a try if you're not sure where to go with 'cheaper' strings.
High quality strings, recommended by our daughter's violin teacher. They work brilliantly, sounds great and last a good amount of time. Durable, reasonably priced and good for beginners or intermediates.
Having read good reviews about this brand online, I decided to try it out as my daughter's violin strings were a bit worn. The quality of her playing has certain improved, I suspect that using worn strings have been very discouraging for her. I am so glad we changed the strings.
Not medium tension, very high tension making pegs pop out all the time. Poorly bound at the winding end, so keep unravelling and sliding out of the hole in the peg. Quite a dull tone but E is slightly more bearable than the razor wire that Dominants make.
Extremely disappointed, I bought two sets of these strings and on both sets the a strings were defective. One a string unraveled after a couple of days and the other nipped while attaching it to the violin. It's a real pity because the tone of the strings were a marked improvement on a beginner set. Amazon doesn't offer me the option to contact seller and I don't have the strings anymore to send back.
