Cures whistling
Jenna, 04.04.2014
I have a tendency to struggle with whistling E strings when changing string quickly from the A to the E. Fo far, the only solution has been to fit these strings. Quite simply, they work.

I play mostly old-time fiddle tunes, and this necessitates a lot of re-tuning and as theses strings are a little more fragile than plain steel plated E strings, you need to be careful to avoid premature breakage. I have found these strings combine well with d'Addario Helicore and Zyex, and also Thomastik Vision and Warchal Karneol.

Sehr gute E-Saite, um den Thomastik Dominant oder Vision Titanium Saitensatz aufzuwerten. Sehr gute Ansprache, hält schon nach wenigen Tagen sehr stabil die Stimmung, weicher Ton, nimmt die Schärfe, die mit den Original E-Saiten aus den genannten Sätzen vorhanden war.

Satisfaite
Marlènep, 27.12.2019
Je suis passée à une corde de "mi Kaplan solution" pour éviter les sifflements indésirables et cela fonctionne.
Bonne durée de vie.
Je les change environ une fois par an (utilisation quotidienne en climat tropical).
Le son est puissant et brillant.
Je n'ai pas encore cassé de corde de mi de ce modèle.

Does what it claims, and sounds nice
Olofson, 04.08.2020
I used one of these along with a Warchal Timbre set on my student violin, and indeed; absolutely no whistling tendencies on the E string! Very easy to play. It also eliminated the harsh, metallic sound I got with standard E strings on this violin. (The Warchal helix E strings have a similar effect, but I couldn't use that with the integrated finetuners on the ConCarbo tailpiece, which is why I used the KS311W instead.)

Some dislike the sound of the KS311W, and after upgrading to a much better violin, I have a theory about why that is. My new violin (professional level) sounds absolutely amazing with a plain steel E string! (Does have a slight whistling tendency, but not problematic at all, unlike my old violin, which was hopeless with that.) I think my old violin just wasn't resonant enough to produce a good tone with a standard steel E string, so the less metallic tone of a wound string matched the other strings much better. However, I suspect my new violin might just sound dulled down with this string, as it needs that steel string brightness to add clarity to the strong body resonance.

In short; great solution for the whistling problem, and might also be an option for violins with an overly bright and metallic tone on the E string.
