Label String

Red Label Violin Strings?

I'm planning on buying my first ever semi-high-end violin strings... and i'm wondering if red label is a good brand and what kind of sound my violin would make with those strings? Thanks...

Red Label strings have their advantages, but I would not classify them as even remotely high end. A steel string like a Red Label will last you an incredibly long time, and you won't notice a breakdown in sound quality or the need to tune frequently. However, the tone they produce is very bright and not very high quality.

If you want to upgrade, I would go with a synthetic core like a dominant or a Piranito. These will give a fuller more mature tone. You will notice that the quality will decline before the string actually breaks, this means the string should be changed. To upgrade further would mean going to a gut core (Like a Eudoxa/Olive). Frankly, unless you are practicing and performing frequently I wouldn't bother spending the money. The tone quality is by far the best (opinion), but they will break down even faster and they are expensive.

For now I would start with a set of Dominants. When you get used to them wait for something to break and replace it with something different so you can compare. After some trial and error, you will hit on the strings that are best for you and your instrument.
