I love black diamond strings. There is never a disappointment with the quality or sound
The Black Diamond string family wouldn’t be complete without the N719 set for the fiddle. This silverplated round wound set is the perfect string set for fiddle players.
With a perfect balance of warmth and brilliance, Black Diamond fiddle strings and violin strings provide powerful projection without any shrillness. Black Diamond has been making fine violin and fiddle strings for over a century. Due to their high carbon steel core, these violin and fiddle strings feature an exceedingly easy bow response to accommodate up- tempo play. Although both are designed for the same instrument, a 4/4 size violin, playing styles and music choices will determine which set you choose. With silverplated, wound D and G strings, fiddle strings by Black Diamond have a bright, projecting tone that is well suited to folk and traditional music. The violin set’s chromium plated wound A, D and G strings give them a warmer sound. All the wound strings are wrapped on a high carbon steel core. The non-wound strings in both sets are plain steel. According to many Black Diamond violin strings reviews, the strings are favored by beginners and lifelong players alike for their quality tone, durability and value pricing.
About as good as it gets for my style. Might not be right for you, but you won't know until you try them. If you play low and slow, these aren't for you. If you catch that Orange Blossom Special often, these will do nicely. Maybe they're not perfect, but I've never done better for the way I play. Strings don't have a lot of features, these tune easily, and sound great, if you like to lay down the boogie fiddle style. Not made for the classical stuff, unless you mean classic bluegrass or rock. As good as it gets for this type of string. No reason to spend more, these are great, last a good long time, and stay tuned pretty well, after the initial break in period. I've paid much more for strings that aren't as good, for my purposes. I like to send the rosin flying, and wear bow hairs out quickly. Blame Charlie for that, he showed me how to play. Charlie Daniels, that is. By David Broughhton From Alabama
