A lot of people on this site have asked about Warchal Brilliant strings so here is my experience with them. What I noticed first is how responsive they are. You can really modulate them in terms of colour and there is a huge dynamic range. Nearly no bow pressure will still give you a beautiful piano while you have ample reserve for forte. Another nice thing is they are very fast! Probably one of the fastest strings out there.
They seem to have quite low tension as well so they are quite opposite from a lot of other modern synthetics in that respect. Further more there is almost no break in period. They sound good from the start. In terms of being brilliant yes they are but in a very balanced way. All the spectrum is there and you never feel they are over the top.
All in all I recommend to try them out. In my oppinion they are the best synthetics on the market. The only problem is that they are quite expensive. In the UK they are 47 pounds!! but I have seen them around 35 Euro in European online shops.
Just remember these are the results on my violin, another instrument may react differently.
