The explanation is simple. It was a misprint on someones part that no-one caught in which we didn't want to fight about. LOL
We figure it's not the end of the world.

I like the Warchal strings that came on my Holstein violin, except for the G.  It sounded "woofy" to me and didn't respond as quickly as the other strings.  Now this is entirely due to my inexperience since it sounded great in the demo video with Pierre playing it.  So I changed it to a Fiddlerman G.  To my ears it was much better.  It was clearer and responded quicker.  It was easier for me to get a good tone with it.  I noted that it was a smaller diameter than the Warchal so maybe it doesn't twist as much before it starts vibrating.  When it comes time to change this set I will probably try the FM D and A.

FM Strings are great. Just installed my third set on my last violin. Now all three have FM strings... I guess I'm a fan ;)
