Synthetic core violin string set: Item: W400
Ametyst violin strings are brighter sounding than Warchal's Karneol strings, and deliver a a pure & focused tone
I've experimented with various strings over the years, since my violin needs toning down in the upper register and firming up in the lower. I'd originally tried a Warchal Brilliant G and liked it, but knew those would probably be too bright for the other strings. Then I bought a set of the Karneols, and they were smooth but a bit lackluster on my violin. The Ametysts sound surprisingly even across all my strings (the E is good but a bit too bright, so I use a Hill instead). They provide a well-supported sound that's a bit more "special" than what I get with Helicores, but still allow me to blend in an orchestra. I've always received excellent service from Concord and am pleased that they carry the Ametysts (Shar does not).
Fast delivery, great product, recommend.
