Durable and sweet-sounding

I find these strings very reliable, using the "light" set for 440 playing and still okay to tune down to 415 when needed.

Good sound match

The top D string matched the other strings I already have on my viol, it is a good length and easy to fit.

Exellent shop

I used Aquila strings for their quality. They have many choices. The Early Music Shop delivered the parcel to me in California very fast. It is good and reliable seller.
