At the moment I'm surfing the net trying to find the best deals on strings. With auditions coming up in the next few weeks, I want to have a fresh set on my fiddle.
I'm in love with the new Evah Pirazzi Gold. They are everything I could hope for in a string. However, the downfall lies in the $81.57 a set.
To add to the issue at hand, I need viola strings as well. I don't really care what I use just as long as they sound good. Evahs are on it and I know they work so I prefer to stay with those.
While I want to take the plunge for Evah Gold for my fiddle and Evah regular for my viola, a total cost close to $200 is a bit to much. Looking at all the different options is starting to make me forget what they all sound like. Passions were a past favorite but having prepared the excerpts on synthetics might be an issue of bow response for the actual event. Sometimes I come back to Wondertone Solo - but what if i'm just to stuck on Evah gold for me to like them? Visions (regular/solo/titanium) haven't been on my violin for a long time and don't really remember what they're like.
Bottom line - We need a more recent review of strings!
