The description of this leather mute sounded a little hyped to me, but it really is a different sound. Muted without that squashed feeling, my viola seems to love it. The response and vibrancy while the the mute is on is better than any mute I have tried.
Great sounding strings best I have ever had on my violin. Also best price and service from Concord
I am very happy.
I am using a Pirastro oliv e-string with the Dominant Pro's. These strings give my instrument a warmer, fuller and more rounded sound. Also, the strings are more responsive to my bows and I am able to more easily draw out a very soft sound. In my view, they are a significant step up from my older Dominant strings.
Beautiful tone, clear tone with the Evah Pirazzi Gold's and Concord has the best prices and best service in the country. I recommend highly
Once they settle in, these strings are as good as any. But at half the price of Versums or Jargar, they're really worth a look. The tungsten G & C take a while to settle in- one week, min.
Having played on gut a lot, I would not describe them that way. Nevertheless, these strings offer a more nuanced sound with ample projection for half the price of most competitors.
Tried others but keep coming back to the Larson A. Focused, strong and warm.
These are the best strings for mine and my sweetheart’s new handmade violins by Darren Freeman in Portland, we tried the Il Cannones on both our instruments and they are of course great but there’s something about the feel and gorgeous colorful sound of the Virtuosos, we’ll be sticking with these!
These strings worked very well for me!
Shifting and string crossings without hiccups. Pure sound across the entire range. Amazing upgrade from the regular Evah Pirazzi strings.
Believe it or not, I received my first violin as a birthday gift 82 years ago. I have also studied and played cello and viola for many decades. I've been experimenting with most of the different premium rosins over the past 40 years - and most recently the Cecilia Signature rosins for VIOLIN, VIOLA and CELLO. I believe these are the best rosins for my bows and instruments I have ever used.
For the information of prospective purchasers, these 1/2-size cakes are the same size as the original Tartini and Andrea rosin cakes.
This tuner is easy to use and inexpensive. Great to quickly tune your, or a students, cello. Also, very handy before a performance for getting the piano pitch so you don't need to time on stage.
This tuner works amazing I tried many of them.The quality and the precision is great.
They have a very intimate sound, but doesn't lack depth.
By far the vision solo silver D and G strings are my favorites. I was not crazy about the A that came with the set because so swapped with a heavy gage Jargar A (blended better even than the Larsen A). The C string is ok but prefer the warmth and projection of a Tungsten rope core over silver. Vision would make my day if they came out with a Tungsten C string!
I am new to Pirastro strings in general. I am also new to using gut strings on my solo/chamber music concert instrument, though I have used gut strings on a baroque viola in the past for a Brandenburg 6 performance.
I have not tried a new brand of strings for years, but, recently, one of my friends mentioned that Eudoxa strings have beautiful sound that he especially liked, and I decided to try... I think I am now going to completely "convert" to using Eudoxa strings from now on. They allow me to explore and produce more sophisticated sound colors than my previous strings, and the instrument now sounds warmer, deeper, and "sweeter" if I want it to sound like that.
I find the strings incredibly responsive. They allow me to play in very fast tempi both in slurs and in separate strokes with a great clarity.
I should have tried Pirastro Eudoxa earlier! Highly recommended!
