Violino Strings ?
I have a very nice violin I purchased recently. When shopping I put efficeiency and response first as it is very important while shaping your skills. Usually im not a huge fan of brighter and edgier instruemnts however I wasnt trying not to be to picky on tone color. The response is very fast and creates a huge sound with minimal bow. The sound however was a little harsh and as I wont be doing any solo work I decided to change to strings to some violinos. I like the sound a lot more with them as it smoothes it and makes the tone more complex. The response is still very fast and efficent. With this is using low tension strings such as these acceptable if it gives the same effect as a less powerful violin with say evah pirazzi strings. Are there any other benifits of using higher tesnsion soloist strings.
Try the Warchal Amber violin strings. You will get the responsiveness and pitch stability of the best synthetic core strings, but with the rich, complex characteristics of gut strings. I used Dominants for close to 30 years, but switched to Warchal Amber strings about three years ago. I recently tried the Evah Pirazzi Gold strings from Pirastro, but was not convinced of their superiority over Warchal Amber.
If you’re pleased with the sound, there’s no reason you need to change them. I tend to prefer other strings, but choosing strings is a fairly subjective thing. Evahs are high tension and tend to make an instrument more sharply focused. Lower tension strings will give more warmth, although at a certain point they become muddy.
Using lower-tension strings is absolutely acceptable, totally fine if it works well for you. If it still responds quickly, great, enjoy!
Obligato. They are the best for what you want, warmer and darker sound, but a little more soloist than Violinos, the perfect sweet spot.
