These strings work very well on my instrument. I would easily put these up against dominants. They are slightly warmer and have more overtones and clarity than dominants. Bow response is very nice and easy so you don't have to feel like you are working hard to play on them. I would recommend these if you like Dominants or even Tonica's A fine multi purpose string!
I play a intermediate level German workshop violin, which has a very focused central tone and does not produce much in the way of harmonics. I’ve settled on Alliance Vivace as my reliable set, adding warmth as well as a bit of sheen to the natural sound of the instrument. The AV’s are faster response than Obligato (very slow), but not the best choice for “fiddling” - better to go w/
Zyex for presto string crossing. But for my style, the Alliance enrich the tone of my instrument.
