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.
After reading up on loads of strings, I decided to give these a try since I play the guitar and have always like D'Addario stings. Changing strings as I do not know what the factory strings on my violin (Stentor Student II) were and the G and D strings sound rather dull and bland.
Packaging isnt too bad i suppose but it can be confusing as the D string is somewhat thinner looking that the A string. It doesnt mention which string is which colour and reading from other reviews that have got snapped strings, they might have been caught out by this.
Anyway long story short, i changed the strings and tuned them up. gave them another 2 or 3 tune up before playing them. Surprisingly, the G and D strings sound very metallic and the sounds feels like the violin is made of metal rather than wood. A and E are alright.
Decided to leave them over night and try again next morning. Tuned them up again and played simple tunes. Beginnning to dislike the sounds produced by the G and D string as it still sound like i am playing a steel violin (search youtube for metal or steel violin and you will know what it sounds like)
These are going into the bin once I get myself a set of Dominants. Very disappointed with these.
I was really looking forward to setting these up for one of my violin students.... problem being that the A string snapped on the first tuning. (I am a professional musician so I know how to set up new strings)
Le corde sono arrivate arrotolate tutte assieme in un unica busta onde non si è potuto stabilire immediatamente a quale nota ogni corda appartenesse (eccetto il mi), poiché avevano lo stesso diametro si è dovuto andare per tentativi. Le corde richieste erano le medie, ma sono risultate come quelle dure. Il suono è stridulo. le corde non mantengono l'accordatura. Globalmente il giudizio è scarso.
El producto llego incompleto solo una cuerda, cuando claramente dice el set, curiosamente paso cuando estaba de promoción el producto y ahora lo regreso y ya lo tengo que comprar al precio original. Muy mala experiencia.
Garbage. The cheaper Prelude strings are better. The G and D are too thin in diameter and poor sounding, the G and D came tarnished. The A string is thicker in diameter than the D string and is way too taught and I fear it will break soon. The E seems fine. Buy Dominants. They are worth it.
Considerando la opinión de que soy un músico profesional, quiero comunicarles que ni siquiera logre interpretar una melodía puesto que creo que estaban usadas y se reventó la primera, es lamentable pero es la realidad. No podría calificarla ni buena ni mala
