I am really getting annoyed of the 'steely' sound my violin is producing - so I am thinking of investing into some new strings, don't care how expensive - I have my eye on this $130 synthetic core set, but I am REALLYYY concerned if it will just leave me disappointed - because I am clueless as to what really produces the tone in a violin - is it primarily the violin itself, or the strings?
I bought a synthetic core A string, but it sounds no different from my previous steel A string - except less piercing (Before I wanted to projectile vomit)
I know the 'steely' sound I can hear is definantly from the strings itself, but am I honestly just better off buying a better quality violin?
If any of you are aware of what an 'ALDI' store is then..yup, I bought my first violin from an ALDI store. Over the time the tone has matured a bit more, or that was due to the water I poured into the f hole - I don't know, but I paid essentialy for the violin around.. $130(AUS) I've been playing on it for 9 months, and I feel like spoiling myself a little bit.
