So, here is. 'Rough' bits and all :) It wasn't actually made to be posted on the forum, but what the heck.

That was great, John, @Ferret.

It sounded very nice on your violin.

Very nice playing as well. Enjoy both the playing and the string.

Thanks for sharing.

thumbs-up

@Fiddlerman

Yes Pierre, they do sound good but was thinking of giving the Larsen Virtuosos a try. Am looking for a new set of strings for the wedding and if I remember correctly, in another post you gave them a good 'rap'.

A good move do you think?

Fantastic strings to say the least. Good memory John.
