These are my Favorite strings! I’ve used many strings over the years and I’m so happy I found these. There almost like dominants but a little bitter and much more responsive. They hardly go out of tune once broke in and they last a long time.
Medium bright Harmonic ring to them Long lasting Easy to tune Stays in tune

Glad I bought them

I'm a novice. Been playing only 2 years but I practice every day. I've only used solid steel core (Prelude) strings until I bought these.
Now I think I understand what "responsive " is. It seems there's more that can be done with bow pressure and speed to get more effect on the sound (tone?). The tone seems a little "softer" too, but not quiter, which I like.
They seem to need more tuning too. Day to day, not while playing.
Bottom line - I like them and will not go back to steel strings.
Nicer sound than steel strings. More tuning at the start of each session. Changes more day to day than solid core steel strings.

When I had my 120 year old fiddle rehabbed I was not certain I would learn to play it so restorer put cheap strings on it and when he played it he told me he wished we had spent the extra $ for better strings for the sound was pretty good. A year went by and I started teaching myself and I called him back and he recommended the exact strings I bought from you.
Even I could tell the difference.
Great sound brings out the richness of sound on the old fiddle. NA

I would give them 5 stars, but I'm still a new player, and I don't know that I've earned that right yet. After hearing everyone talk about the differences between steel core and synthetic core strings, I had to finally try a pair. I went with these. So far, I am very pleased. They don't have nearly the "scratchy" sound that I was used to dealing with, and I really like how they sound on my violin. If you're curious, I made a video of the change over, that you can watch here: http://youtu.be/iL1BqXys9t4
