    Comments about Pirastro Oliv Series Viola A String:

    This string will make a 'less than' instrument sound like a pro. It's expensive but it's ability to produce a fabulous sound is worth it, if you have to have a fabulous sound. If you're a student or a beginner - don't buy it. This is a professional string for a pro who needs to sound the best to get the gig/chair. As with all wound strings, it doesn't stay in tune and needs to be pampered for a while after you first put it on.

      Comments about Pirastro Oliv Series Viola A String:

      These are fabulous strings. The sound is tremendous. They are typical of double wound strings in that they go out of tune a lot. However the warm vibrant sound they produce is worth the re-tuning. My only complaint is that they are very expensive. However if you gig or chair is riding on your sound, it is worth it to give them a try.
