My favorite E

I love this E string. Not only does it not whistle, it has an endearing sound quality; not shrill. No matter what E comes with a set, I will always use this Kaplan string.

Vi Wickam
E String with the Best Tone of All

I have tried lots of different E Strings, and the Kaplan Non-Whistling E is my favorite. It doesn't last as long as some other E strings, but the tone is the best. It's silky and warm. The only down side is that I usually wear through the winding in about 4 months. Of course, how long it will last for you will depend on how much you play on it.

life saver

wonderful string, blends beautifully with the other strings. I suppose most like the brilliance of a plain E, but I prefer the sweetness of this Kaplan. (and nary a whistle)

Amanda Torres
Kaplan violín E string

I prefer this E string because it's aluminum wounded and it doesn't visibly rust like other steel strings.

Non-whistling E string

This string is slightly thicker than other violin E strings. I found the tone to be dull, scratchy, and non-responsive. For me, the sacrifice in tone quality is not worth a couple of whistles.
