    I want to try gut G and D strings. Although I've heard that olivs have a great tone, I've also heard that they can have an unreasonably short life and can be a tuning hassle.
    The quinn violin website describes the golden spirals as "durable". Do they have an appreciably longer life and stability of tuning? How does the tone and feel compare?
  2. These strings have been discontinued recently.
    I suggest you contact Chris Quinn about this.
    I think you should forget about them, sorry.
