Decent Violin string for the money!

Ordered a few sets of these strings on a whim, planning to fix up a couple of old 4/4 fiddles to resell and didn't want to put a LOT of money into strings. These are a Perlon-core string, similar to Thomastik Dominant, which are pretty expensive compared to these.

First off, the quality of these strings surprised me, and they made these old fiddles really come to life. So, I put another set on one of my personal violins, and the tone that came from it was really sweet and deep, not harsh and tinny like I was expecting from cheaper strings. They have a nice "touch" too, and create a plesant "bite" when bowed lightly, and seem to be rather flexible, much more so than regualar steel fiddle strings.

The only negatives I would give them is the E string, which sometimes "squeals" a bit too much and is light and rather tinny. They are also a bit shorther than most 4/4 strings, which could cause a problem for longer-scale instruments. They come very simply packaged, in clear sealed cellophane liners with the string # designation printed on each with no other info, inside of a plastic pouch, so you are not paying more for fancy packaging. But, for the money these can't be beat, and they should work fine on most all fiddles.

Time will tell how durable they are, but they seem to be well-made and the ball ends are secure and solid, and the wrapping is nice and smooth. Of course, they won't get the tone and volume of Thomastik Dominants, but if you have a fiddle that seems a bit "raw and tinny" do yourself a favor and pick up a set of these strings - - I'll bet in most cases you'll see an immediate improvement in the tone of your instrument. For the $$ it's really a no-brainer.

        I a professional guitarist but I'm still learning about violin strings......these feel just fine on my fingertips. They seem to produce an adequate tone when I bow correctly.....but remember I'M NEW AT THIS....SO I HAVEN'T FIGURED IT ALL OUT YET! I bought them because they were very inexpensive. As I get better I'll try more expensive strings to see if there is a marked difference or not.

                  Everything went really well, These were shipped the same day and arrived within the week... faster than anticipated. I was advised on all shipping details by email and am very pleased with mf and the whole arrangement. I will be using them in the future. pro
                  Very reasonable price,,, Avg 20-30 at the stores,
                  $10.00 a set through MF.
                  they came in good quality, fresh strings, good packaging and very useful.
                  Ball ends were secure, the strings were dimensionally accurate and consistent over the length,
                  they were the right length and color coded. I also liked the individual tagging of the strings for identification so I could compare them with the original strings on the violins before installation.
                  nice strings, good polish on the metal with no oxidation or rust and individually packaged as well as contained within the set. I would recommend these. Very Good.
                  Excellent price. good quality for the strings,,, I checked Dayton OH, Columbus OH, Cincinnati OH, and Indianapolis IN and found similar sets selling for much higher at the stores. These were well worth the price, and very convenient to order.

                  Thanks MF, I ordered 3 sets.
