Good strings, good sound, great price
By B. McGuffey
I still consider myself a beginner after taking lessons with my son for the past 2 years. However, I knew I wanted a better sound out of my student quality electric violin. These have been great. I love the more mellow, rich sound and I didn't go broke upgrading. I could get 2 sets of these for the price of most other medium level strings.
*Note: I did have the A-string break after 2 months of use, but a quick call to the company and they are sending a replacement without question. Good customer service, so I'm still happy. If you are that worried about breaking a string then buy two sets (about same price as 1 set of competitors) and always have a backup.

GREAT PRODUCT ! AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE ! ! !
By Bradley W Taylor
Great Product, Amazing Customer Service ! A novice, I looked at upgrading my Violin strings on my Ricard Bunnel G2, and am very impressed. The sound is way better, more rich than with the strings that came on my violin. While tuning my E-string it snapped, I contacted Fiddlerman and he immediately sent a replacement E-string. He followed up to check how the installation went and if I was happy with the support, a very personal touch, especially over the internet. Fiddlerman and his crew a great! I will be shopping from them in the near future (that Carbon Fiber Bow looks like it will be a great improvement), they have secured a long time customer! Thanks again Fiddlerman! ! !

Great sound, but unfortunately the A string unraveled after ...
By R. Hicks
Update: First off I must commend Fiddlerman for their excellent customer service. That alone makes it worthwhile dealing with this company. Secondly, I will update my review accordingly once I have played/tested the strings some more.
Original review: Great sound, but unfortunately the A string unraveled after a mere three weeks near the first fingered position of B to C#. It was a huge disappointment. I am a fiddler and do a lot of rolls and sliding, so perhaps this was what caused the malfunction. Although, I haven't had this problem with other strings.
Overall these strings have a good sound, especially on the lower strings. I cannot recommend them as the lifespan doesn't justify the cost.
