I have used;
Warchal, DiaDario, Corelli, Thomastic, and some no-name Chinese junk.
Never had any issues with the string windings.
But on my Pira$tro EP Golds--the winding came unravelled quite quickly from the viola D string.
I just recently tried a Eudoxa A on my viola last week, and the winding is already separating near the bridge.
Why so fragile, Pirastro?
Some of the sets of Warchal I have pretty much abused: taking them off one instrument, trying them on another, switched them back, etc, etc. NO PROBLEM.
But the high priced Pirastros seem to wilt if you look at them wrong.
