I've scoured the archives for Violino info and it's mentioned here and there in various threads. I'm looking for any further input on these strings.
I have a Yang Wei violin, tending towards the bright side. The last two sets of strings I had on it were Daddario Zyex (new formulation) and ProArte. Both of which seemed fine on there, with me leaning towards the ProArtes, as they seem to be a bit mellower, warmer and smoother.
From what I've gleaned, the Violinos sound like they fit a similar description: mellow and low tension.
I'm a beginner, so projection in a concert hall is not anywhere on my priority list. I'm looking for a nice rich sound with easy bow response.
The ProArtes have been great for me so far. No complaints there. I'd be happy to simply stick with them as the string of choice as they sound nice in my violin and you can get a new set of PAs on EBay for under $20.
But one must always try new strings mustn't they?
