    Default Violin Strings and Rosin

    Hello. I'm new to Talk Classical.
    So I know this is a generic topic that has probably been discussed numerous times. However, I only have a few to choose from. And I also know that it's subjective, and everyone has their opinions. Isn't that the point of these forums, though?
    I basically have these to choose from for strings:
    Artisan
    D'Addario Orchestral Prelude Violin Medium Tension
    Pirastro Chromcor Ball End
    D'Addario Orchestral Ascente Medium Tension
    Pirastro Tonica
    I'm inclined to pick the Artisan or Pirastro Tonica. Do you have experience with these ones? Should I go with the full sets, or do you recommend combinations?
    I'm early intermediate, but I'm looking for rich, warm, powerful and durable strings.
    For rosin:
    D'Addario Kaplan Light
    D'Addario Natural Light
    Jade L'Opera
    Hidersine VP-033V Series III
    Pirastro Goldflex
    Andrea
    Bernardel
    I've only had Facts Amber Violin Rosin, which I like, but I don't have much experience with others. I'd like to get two. Which do you recommend the most?
    Thanks in advance.
