he Slovakian string maker Warchal only started making strings in 2003. In the decade since then, the distinctly European sound of Warchal strings has impressed many American violinists. Warchal's line of Brilliant strings attacks the problem of projection with a brighter sounding synthetic core string. The tonal complexity and powerful projection of the Brilliant strings combines to create a rich, full sound. These strings have a quick break-in period and very responsive playability.
