Olives are on their way!Accessories: Ordered olive strings! Very excited!
From Jerry Koziorynsky
I've heard the A string is kinda a crap shoot which I why I also got a Synoxa and Passione A in the event that it turns out to be as terrible as people say.
So what should I expect v.com members??? Any opinions are welcomed.
From Brian LeeYou'll find the biggest difference from the Passiones to be in the G string. The D is also quite good. The A, however...... let me say it was a very good idea to get a couple different ones.

From Paul DeckThe olives will sound better because they're new.

From Jim HastingsIn my tryout of Passiones, I decided, in place of Passione G, to substitute the Oliv G, stiff version. I did this on the basis of earlier research and feedback on v.com. People were saying that the Passione G was fickle; others have said the same about the Oliv A.

I'm also going to make a separate comparison tryout of Passione D and stiff Oliv D. At the moment, I'm leaning toward a 50/50 split on one instrument -- Passione E-A; stiff Oliv D-G. Tryout not completed -- will have better details to report when it's done. It can take a long time to compare responses of three vintage fiddles.
