The strings produce a warm, big and well-balanced tone and they have a very good projection on high frequencies. They have a very homogeneous sound in all the bass positions. Harmonic sound is easy to make and the tuning of the strings is very stable. The dolce strings can be tuned for solo playing, while the forte and medium strings can only be used for orchestra tuning which make the strings very versatile in use.
