I have read that the strings can make a huge difference in sound but until I got brave enough to change the ones that came with my violin, I had no idea.
I changed the strings today to the Helicore I had, and I am amazed at the difference..
My violin sounds so much warmer, it lost that tinny, whiny sound it had.
When i splurged on a fancy set of Obligato's i felt like i had just taken my violin out for a lobster dinner date. With candles and everything. I don't know why an envelope with four pieces of string feels so luxurious a treat to me...but the difference is clearly audible :)Enjoy your new strings!!
Strings are what actually vibrate and generate the sound. No matter how good the instrument itself may be, it can't deliver what the strings can't give it.
