As expected and more...
I have been playing the violin for 13 years. Since then, I have transitioned from student to intermediate, and from advanced to a fine old violin that is quite complex and powerful, but also whose tone needed coaxing out on the higher-end of the harmonics.
I had an Evah Pirazzi goldsteel E on it before the anxiously awaited arrival of this new Platinum E... so when I got it from Shar in the mail just the other day, I installed this E and let it sit for half a day while it settled in to the rest of the set of
Evah Golds- when I brought it back up to pitch and began playing, I noticed the open E string didn’t have that metallic ‘hiss’ or ‘twang’ that many of them do out of the package. It actually sounded full. Not only that, but the left-hand feel is just superb.
Different, but superb. It’s very easy to shift into higher positions up the fingerboard, the tone is radiant but crystal-clear, and yet with a striking warmth and complexity that didn’t quite exist on my instrument before, and the response is dead-on. It's
improved my violin’s fullness of tone, response, and sound color in every aspect! No looking back now! Thanks, Shar!
