Thomastik advanced synthetic core violin string set with silver D: Item: VIS101
After many years using Stark Dominants I switched to Vision Solo strings and never looked back. Quick break in, huge tonal palate and long life make them my choice. Thanks for the great service from as always from Concord!! No one provides better service or gets you your strings quicker then Concord.
Right after I got Vision solo strings I would have given them 5 stars - fast break-in time, lovely, warm sound, nice response, but I just didn't get around to reviewing them. Glad I waited. After 3 weeks on my violin they lost that initial vibrant sound and became much less responsive. Just to make sure it wasn't a function of the weather or something, I threw on some old Eva Pirazzi's and my violin sprang back to life.
I have ordered from Concord Musical Supplies regularly since the late 1980s and they have always provided excellent service, reasonable prices and a wide variety of string supplies. This time I ordered Vision Solo strings, my go-to brand. As a professional orchestra violinist, these strings are even and rich in tone; they are powerful enough to play a concerto, but flexible enough to blend in during quiet orchestral passages; they are reliable and don't take long to break in.
I bought these to replace a set of Dominants, and I couldn't be happier. They have lovely tone colors, and they don't get "fuzzy" as you get into higher positions on the lower strings. The E really sings. Very responsive, easy to play. Highly recommended!
I have been using Thomastik Vision violin strings for a few years. They are warm, responsive, and well balanced. For the first time this ever, I tried Vision Solo. They are very different from Titaniums, which I found to be very good but slightly too edgy in my violin's young years (since it was made in 2014). The Vision solos sound deeper, richer, and smoother, but the heaviness of the gauge and thickness of the string give them a sluggish response and require a heavier bow arm and more continuous effort. I get physically tired, and also have trouble playing faster passages in the low register. I am in love with the richness of the tone! The G and D strings deliver the buttermilk instead of skim. However, I will cut those losses and return to the Vision regulars just for the ease of playing. I may also try Titaniums again, now that my violin has calmed down a bit. I'd love to try Peter Infeld, but perhaps later once my budget can take a potential risk, or in other words, when I can afford a back-up set in the case that PIs don't work well for me.
