Corelli Violin Crystal Set, Ball End E, Wound on Stabilon, Medium, 700MBj. wollockDecember 20, 2009I am a professional violinist. I had never used Corelli strings before. I got the Crystals because I heard they are especially good on Chinese violins. (The Chinese make lots of excellent violins, but the strings leave a lot to be desired.) I have two new Chinese fiddles. The first one sounded great with these strings. They did even more for the second one, which with the Chinese strings was wolfing all over the place. The Crystals eliminated much of the wolfing, and the general tone improved a lot. I don't mean to imply that they are only good for Chinese violins. They seem to be a reliable all-purpose string. I would describe the tone as warm, a bit dark, mellow. If you like the old Tonica, or Dominants, you may like these. They are more nuanced than Zyex. Of course choice of strings is a matter of personal taste and also must suit the particular instrument.
