I just fall in love with this wonderful string! I wanted to give it a shot since nobody around me leave a review. It is highly playable and easy to vibrate with.
I am always happy with the service I receive from Concord. Inventory is large, my orders are quickly filled and shipped, with courteous notes. Thank you, Concord!
I've used Vision Titanium Orchestra for years, and recently started trying different strings. A friend of mine loved Obligato so I tried those which didn't work at all on my violin. Evah Pirazzi were very bright which was fine until I finally changed my fingerboard, which also meant changing my bridge. I saw these Dominant Pros, tried them out and immediately loved them. Warm tone (which I prefer), easy to play and I would purchase them again as well as highly recommend them.
For the first 20 years I owned my #1 violin I used Pirastro gut-core strings. But then I moved across the country and played in various venues that exposed it to sudden extreme temperature and humidity changes that played havoc with string intonation stability. When synthetic-core strings appeared 50 years ago theysolved my climate problem but I never again was completely satisfied with the sound of this violin with any of the many string brands I tried - although some came close. Now that I have been using Perpetual Cadenza strings for the past month I am completely satisfied. Thank You!
I love these strings and have used them for at least 10 years, sound is so pure, I recommend them highly.
A strong, warm and clear sound, with more subtly than synthetic core. I don't find it to be as flexible as Eudoxa, but it works well, without the difficulty and expense of trying all the different gauges available with the Eudoxa. Highly recommend Passione strings!
After years of experimenting, and I mean REALLY trying everything, I am fully committed to Pirastro and their gut strings. Oliv cello strings, and in my case, the stark/thickest gauge, do absolute wonders for my cello. I pair the thick C, G, and D with the Perpetual Solo Strong A or Passione Strong A. If you find yourself in the market for new strings and have a luthier close by for any transition adjustments needed (grooves of nut or bridge), give them a try. Give them a REAL TRY, like at least a couple of weeks. You may hate them, or, like me, they may change your life forever, spoiling you with a new type of sound that just isn't possible with an all steel string setup.
I have a bright modern Italian violin and have had trouble finding the right strings to balance the power and brightness. These strings have just the right amount of huge sound plus warmth plus vibrance and they feel so natural and the sound is elegant. Used to use dominant strings but these are a much needed upgrade. Fivestars.
Excellent A and D soloist
prefer over Jargar strings, which I used for decades
One of the best rosin for its price, totally worth it...
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.
