tone vs. agility
I love these strings! However, no matter how much I like my sound and the feel of them under my fingers (they are friendly to the left hand), there remains a problem with orchestral bow techniques n certain styles such as long off-the-string sections in Beethoven or crossing strings with a quick response. That said, the humidity or time of year makes the downside of these strings less of a issue than others. If you like a warm Obligato string, these are up your alley as long as the humidity doesn't make them floppy. They are a bit better in this regard than the regular Larsen string..they respond better and are a bit wider in spectrum of treble and bass frequencies as opposed to regular larsens which can be quite dead on an already deep violin (or viola). The viola A string (Larsen) does wonders to an instrument strung with other Pirastro strings (variations of Obligatos and Evah's in thin and thicker gauges depending on theinstrument's needs. It ls like icing on the cake. The E string of this set can be a bit bright when strung with a complete set of Tzigane Larsens. That could be a plus or a minus....I compare it to a bright golld Olive or similar pirastro gold line product. That's about it! -Jennifer -Jennifer ... (See Full Review)
