Kaplan Amo Synthetic core strings provide warmth, richness, and flexibility for brighter instruments. Strings settle quickly, exhibiting a rich tonal color palette and superb bow response.
My expectations were pleased with the sound quality, brilliant hearing and quality of the material.
I play on a modern instrument and I am already using a second set of Kaplan Amo Strings. I like them very much. I've tried Kaplan Vivo but found them too harsh and slow to respond. Before switching to d'Addario I used Obligato strings and I prefer Amo to Obligato primarily for the longevity of the former. I'd recommend these strings for their quick break in time, even sound through the registers and because they last somewhat longer than others I've had in the past.
I am a returning student that has been playing on the Kaplan Amo strings after using the Blue Infeld set. My primary instrument is German from the early 1900's. So far, the Amo strings are a pleasure to play on my instrument-they are bright, project well, and have a smooth, mellow tone, without sounding muddy on the lower register.
