Sorry, haven't tried them, but even if I had it may not make much difference since everyone's experience is different.
Pro-Arte are not expensive strings, probably wouldn't hurt to try.
All your strings sound bright?
Pro-Arte are supposed to be on the warm side, but according to the comparison chart - they're pretty close to midway between Warm & Bright.
I'd be concerned that even though you've been playing Baroque music, you still play Irish fiddle tunes. Think you might want warm and 'focused' for better response when playing Irish fiddle tunes. Pro-Arte strings are at the opposite end of focused, on the chart.
I was seriously thinking about Warchal Amber, but just changed to strings I already had. They cost a little more, but not as bad as Obligato. (lol)
I'd love to know what you think about any new strings you try! 😊
@stringy I have not tried pro arte and should stop there considering your direct question but what the heck... it can be a favorite string thread again..
I dont know what your willing to pay, but larsen tzigane strings are slightly less expensive than obligatos and are, in my opinion, warm and quick. im sure there will be conterpoints to that but Ive one fiddle thats on its second set right now.
