Favorite viola strings

They have power and warmth, with quick response. Priced well below Obligato, they are a real bargain. I tried several brands from Obligato to Tomastik to Spirochore to Larsen in all manner of combinations. Kaplan Amo comes out on top.

Very metallic sounding

The G string is very metallic sounding on my viola and the C string is scratchy. I may go back to the Forza strings

Emerson De Biaggi
powerful volume, timbre a little metalic

I tried the Kaplan Amo Viola set on 2 of my violas. Both showed an increase in volume, but the sound quality is a little metalic, I hope with the use this will get better

Kaplan Amo Viola String Set - Long Scale - Medium Gauge?

I am not thrilled. Caveat, I am a violin player. Borrowing my sister's really nice viola. These strings, the A sounds whiny, the C growly. The D & G are good. I was trying to get the closest to gut strings as I could find. I thought these might be. Nope.

Love the Kaplan Amo strings

"Fantastic dyanamic range on both my 1926 & 1966 Ernst Heinroch Roth violas. Whether recording chamber music or in a full orchestra section outdoors, it allows me the broadest range of color from the softest clear pppp to the loudest non-distorted ffff.
It also allows me fantastic articulation whether in the fastest Tchaik passages or playing flying violin transcriptions. It arguably advanced my viola playing much closer to my violin ability. I'm now using them on my violin too and I just ordered a set for
my cello."
