Hi, I wanted to buy a new set of strings. I have a $350 violin that is alright. The strings it has are the original ones (not that good), except the A string, which is a Dominant.
I don't want (can't actually) to spend a lot of money, $40 already seems a little expensive to me. Which set of strings would you recommend to me?
I prefer longevity over other aspects, since I can't buy each 3-4 months a new set. May be 2-3 per year, more like 2. I've heard many famous ones:
D'Addario's: Zyex, Helicore, Prelude
Pirastro's: Synoxa, Tonica,
Thomastik's: Vision, Infield, Spirocore, Dominant
I wanna read some opinions :)
