Good quality strings. I found that they did make a difference in how the violin responded with good resonances and ease of play.

HASH(0x949c2a98) out of 5 stars To Each Instrument Its Own... 5 Aug. 2011
By Danielle - Published on Amazon.com
Size: J810 4/4 Medium Tension
I bought a set of these strings for my student violin of which I continue to play with into college and after in a community orchestra. My student instrument tends to prefer the inexpensive strings and sounds better with them, hence my title to each instrument its own. But I find this set to be warm and beautiful like a gut set even though the strings are steel. On my more expensive instrument I prefer the Pirastro brand like Pirastro Gold and I feel as though the Prelude's compare. The Piastro Gold is sharper and deeper/darker with some brightness to it. The Preludes have the same warmth, but is more sweeter sounding than the Golds. Furthermore, it takes little time for it to acclimate than the Gold and is far cheaper. It may sound a little more muted than the Gold, but I'm happy with the projection of the Prelude if I can get a smooth, sweet, sound like I do. It doesn't sound broken or harsh, the Preludes are smooth like buttah and they last a long time (not as long as SuperSensitives, but long enough).

I actually prefer this over the ProArte.

HASH(0x949c2aec) out of 5 stars Great for beginners 4 Jan. 2013
By Chasesmommy - Published on Amazon.com
Size: J810 3/4 Medium Tension Verified Purchase
I have taught public school orchestra for the past nine years and I have found that these strings are great for the cost. They stay in tune, wear well, and have a pleasant tone which is more than I can say about similar strings in this price range!

HASH(0x949c2dc8) out of 5 stars Better than the stock strings on a Cremona. 10 July 2013
By A. Moubray - Published on Amazon.com
Size: J810 4/4 Medium Tension Verified Purchase
I chose these because the reviews seemed better than the cheaper strings and I am too cheap to pay more. They sound much better than the stock strings on a Cremona SV-150. It sounded hideous, but I assumed it was all simply me not knowing how to play. Come to find out I only sucked half as bad as I thought! They are much easier to keep in tune, and I have even learned to make pleasant noises with my violin. Hopefully that will turn into music one day!

HASH(0x949c2cc0) out of 5 stars Beginner's Best Friend 11 Sept. 2011
By HowlyGrowly - Published on Amazon.com
Size: J810 4/4 Medium Tension Verified Purchase
I recently started learning to play an electric violin and had to replace one of my strings. I had no idea what I was doing, but these strings were affordable and highly rated. So, I gave them a go. I'm glad I did! These strings will be your best friend if you are a novice player who has fumbled tuning the strings a time or two. The inside of the envelope reveals a color code for each string (G,D,A,E), and I had no trouble at all replacing my broken string with one of these for the very first time. The replacement blends in with the other steel strings that my violin came with. If you don't want your practice to be held up with a broken string, I highly recommend buying two or three of these packs for backup!

HASH(0x949c2eac) out of 5 stars far better than stock strings 2 April 2013
By Dion - Published on Amazon.com
Size: J810 4/4 Medium Tension Verified Purchase
Replaced my set of stock strings after a week on my new student violin. the A and E strings on this Prelude set can do much better job than the stock set when playing higher notes. Great for student or budget minded without breaking your budget.
