Sean Belt Fiddle String preferences (4) Fiddle String preferences? 13 Apr 06

For a lot of reasons -- none very interesting -- I haven't been visiting the Mudcat for a looooong while. BUt it seems like a good time to jump back into the water. Here goes...

I've been using Prims on my fiddle for the G, D, and A and a Pirastro Gold (the gold label, not the gold string) for the E for a few years now and am very satisfied with them. They sound good on both of my instruments, they seem to last a long time, and they hold up well to my frequent cross-tuning.

Still... there's always room for improvement and the suspiscion that the grass is always greener on the next guy's instrument.

So, what are you using? And why?
