A good set of strings makes a greater difference than many players realize not every violin needs the same type of string
5/5

Make sure you know what instrument you are playing. Strings can have a major impact on the sound and color of your violin, no matter what instrument you are using, whether it is a beginner violin or a more expensive This string is a great alternative for a steel string E. If you have long used a steel string, I highly recommend it. With it, you can practice your bowing without having to fight your violin, as you'll no longer be able to hear shrill tone and squeaks. It is a good string for a reasonable price, and you may want to check out the full set too. If you are like me and working to improve your technique, good strings are essential. Steel E strings can produce a harsh sound, especially if you use normal steel strings. As you work on your bowing with this non whistling E string, you'll be able to hear a more beautiful noise, which is ultimately the best way to avoid the "squeak" There is nothing better than playing a violin with a lovely rich tone and I am doing my best to do so. I own a wonderful Desarey violin. Several years ago, I was a professional hockey player, but I had to stop because of my health. It takes me time for my skills to return, but I'm getting there. It would be helpful if you could tell me how to get help. This string is very pleasing to the ear.

String of great quality, but will break after a little while
3/5

The violin in my band is also a Kansas tribute band. I use these for my country music and for my Kansas tribute band. There is one other brand I haven't heard of yet, so I'm just whistling E's. You will need to pay $10 plus shipping for every gig you play with this string because it is light, has a great sound and feel, there is no whistle or screech. If you touch the peg to tune your E even a little bit, you will get a nice little pop! This string is good for maybe a week of playing, but if you touch your peg to tune your E, the POP will last a long time. There will be a complete blowout of the string. Despite being made of aluminum, they don't whistle, but the downside is that they can't handle the tension the E String is subjected to. That's why you hear the E String squealing to begin with. This is the reason it only gets 3 stars from me. String stoppage causes the squeal from time to time, but such stops will always occur within a week or two, before the string is They're cheap, which is why I buy them in bulk, and I use them for gigs since no squeal is better than none When practicing with the steel E, squeals and whirrs, I would recommend that you start with a steel E before adding the squeals. You can then switch it out for this Kaplan a day or two before the show.

The strings on which I played were much better than those on which I played
3/5

My opinion of this string is not very favorable. The product is marketed as a solution for whistling electronic messages There are some strings in the game, but there are other problems as well. There is a great deal of tension in this When I used it along with my set of Prim medium tension strings, the Kaplan strings put so much lateral pressure on my bridge that they shifted it over to my bass side, counteracting the opposite tension of Thus, the string does not hold its intonation well at all, since it keeps pushing the bridge over, resulting in a As a mediocre film it suffers from overproduction It is a string that sounds. Recently, I added a Warchal Amber E string to my collection. Furthermore, it is touted as a way to whistle an This is an absolutely lovely sound with strings.

Despite the fact that it seems impossible, it One string made such a difference that I would have never imagined
5/5

I bought my daughter a new violin, but from what I understand the E-string doesn't work There was a horrible whistle in the string. Upon starting the piece on her new violin, she knew what to expect when she had just started the piece on her 3/4 size violin. The first chord she plays in that piece is actually three, and she knows what to expect since she tried it out on her 3/4 size violin first. The E-size has moved up to a size 4/4 There was a terrible twang from the string. The luthier probably put on nice strings, but this D'Addario Kaplan Non-Anlin String Set seems like a better option I've seen a huge improvement since I learned to whistle E. The E-coli outbreak may cause you to experience a low grade fever Give this string a try if you have a whistling string issue. The reason why I was skeptical was that we tended to purchase the more expensive brands Strings in a full set should end with the same character. In any case, this will be utilized for E-mail I purchased the string based on recommendation from my daughter's violin teacher, as well as excellent results I personally have experience with.

I suggest giving it a try
4/5

An E- that's not too cold I like that this has no strings attached (whatever that means) and definitely delivers on the non-musical aspects I'm not sure how to implement the whistling part. The sound of strings such as this one is not as clear as that of plated strings. As far as I'm concerned, I don't have much experience with various would-be options in this matter, although I have tested out a bunch of E-mail clients over the years. When I play my violins, I play strings. As it stands, this one is a decent one. Despite its sweetness, the melody has a grittiness that you can hear underneath your ears. I mentioned earlier that the grit gets lost as you get closer to the listener and transforms into that charming character I mentioned earlier. If you are having trouble finding a less-expensive string, you might want to give it a shot I am piercing my I hate that gold string I hate that gold There is nothing worse than a plated option that whistles.

Strings of this strength are known to be weak to D'Addario
3/5

It took me a while to get the string up to 440hz, but once it was, I played a couple of tunes on it and put it in its took out my fiddle was in July at the Summertown Bluegrass Reunion and since the string was new, it naturally stretched, so I carefully tuned it up a little and it popped, just like the other reviewers had My guitars have countless Helicore strings and I have never had any issues except for its whistling E string, so I am very disappointed in D' Addario for releasing this gimmick. Whistling a string for e. There should be a refund for me.

OK, but I believe it has a defect in the winding
3/5

I installed this Kaplan e string, but it appears to have a defect in the winding. The metal is sticking out from the top. Take a look at the There's a good chance it will break one day. It is among those titles that I am uncertain whether to return or still play. Cosmetic defects or aesthetic issues are not acceptable to me. There are no serious issues with the performance and it sounds okay. While I am performing, I am concerned that it might break.

I like it much better now
5/5

In addition to the violin, I have two cellos. The moment I put this on my favorite (I know, I shouldn't do that), I can tell a difference immediately. The string on this page is really helpful to me, as I am a relatively new fiddler. I still get the whistling when I play one of the other two. This is a great idea. I'd like to order two more of them.
