I just put on a set of the Pirastro Eudoxas. I haven't used a set of Eudoxas in like five years. I really like the tone but the tension feels weird. I don't remember the G and D string feeling so..."loose". Perhaps I've been playing on synthetic strings that require more tension for so long that I've forgotten how soft gut really is. I had a set of Olivs on my violin about six months ago and I don't remember them feeling this loose. Is this a common characterstic with the Eudoxa strings? I'm not going to change them...I love the sound too much. I'm sure I can get use to the looseness although I'm to have to adjust my bowing abit.
