I don't know why these strings aren't better known ... they're incredibly loud & very clear. The basses are perfectly balanced -- tonally & volume-wise -- to the trebles. They have a very immediate response, and a kind of regally grand tone ... I'm sure that they're the strings Bream used on his classic recordings of Bach's A- & E-minor lute suites -- they're distinctive enough that I think I'm right about this.
Although I'm not using them right now, I think that they're much more interesting than LaBella's 2001 strings -- they're a premium string at a very low price.
Their only drawback is that, for some reason, I find the basses just a tad worse for string noise than most.
