Zyex D'Addario String - Medium tension


 I've only had the strings on for 3 days.     So far..........

They are very suited to my viola.  For the mid range price that they are, I think they are very nice strings.

The sound is powerful, resonate, and warm.   The c and g strings sound deep and full.

The d string of course is different, but holds it's own as far as sound goes.

The a string is crisp and clean.

The response is good and clean.

They are a soft string, so playing it feels nice on the fingers.

They are staying in tune now, and didn't stretch much at all. I played for hours yesterday and only re-tuned it once.

Overall I am happy with the Zyex strings on this particular viola.   I read a lot of reviews before I decided to try them.  Some said they were metallic and weak, but they are the exact opposite on my instrument.

Thank you, Oma. This is very useful

This is a very well written review and contains some very helpful information for violists looking for information on the Zyex. 

Although, they may sound different on someone else's viola, knowing they are soft on the fingers and hold the tune quickly is very good to know for any viola. I found this very helpful and it answered some questions I was wondering about.
