Only installed for one day, so cannot say I (yet) decipher a significant difference in tone from the previous Pirastro Wondertone E-string, but believe it does not 'cut' into one's finger as much as a non-coated steel strings so liking it very much. It might have a slightly mellower tone; I've never had an e-string I didn't like.. and... yes, it is attractive. Others more advanced on the violin than I may decipher more of a 'sound' difference (on my old 'rescued' violin). This E-string sounds well (to me) with the other Pirastro Wondertone strings. As always, Shar delivered quickly. Time will tell if it's as durable as the standard steel strings. I'll write a new review (or edit here if possible) if my review changes.

It went false less than two weeks after installation. Maybe it's a lemon, or just not compatible with my violin and Dominant A, D, and G strings. But based on my one-time experience I am giving it an one-star.
