Strings for a nice Yitamusic T20?

March 8, 2020, 4:11 AM · Good morning everyone!
I've just received my Yitamusic T20, and I definitely love it! It's strange but by this time (I hope no bad things will come out later) I think I've made a real improvement from my previous Stentor Student I, which I hated and I definitely want to sell fast, to this Chinese one.
It's unbelievable how good could something made in China be, we are for sure too stuck in our prejudices.

But now I have a question:
Which strings do you think could fit it better? I've set it up with Pirastro Tonica with golden E; I think they sound good but I would like to know if it could be better with something like Dominant o Pirazzi Gold (even thought I think Pirazzi Gold are a little bit too much for this violin)

Any advices?

Thank you very much and have a nice practicing!
