For me, Brilliants are very pitch-stable.
It's worth mentioning that different instruments respond differently to various kinds of strings. In other words, your mileage WILL vary.
Be sure to try the Timbre set, available through shops or a reduced-price demo set from their website. Compares favorably to Thomastik Rondo and Pirastro Perpetual.
Karneol is my go to for viola.
The Brilliant strings are really good for the money from when I last tried them a few years ago. I use rondo right now, but maybe I'll try them again soon.
Any other suggestions for G and D would be most appreciated.
