I decided to use these strings after reading they tamed these kind of violins, although the fact that they were often described as dull and lifeless made me wary of them.
Well, they have tamed the instrument a bit... and they sounded dull at first. But a month and a half later they sound bright. I'm enjoying them way more than I thought I would. My teacher didn't like them very much at first, but as they've become brighter he's changed his mind and said they produce a beautiful sound on my instrument.
My instrument sounded best with Tziganes, specially at lower registers, but the volume was really loud. They may work better on a more delicate instrument than mine. Violinos are less complex sounding, but for my current necessities and my current violin they have been a nice surprise both for my teacher and me.Tweet
