Pros: The strings have made a fair difference to the tone of my playing; it is brighter and more resonant and the cello is consequently more rewarding to work on.
Cons: Slightly harsh to start with, but settled quickly into a good tone.
Other: Good service - very prompt and cost-effective.

Pros: Excellent. Made a huge difference to the sound of our new beginner cello.
Cons: I have to put something here. They cost almost half of what we paid for the cello but they were well worth it. It was a cheap cello.
Other: They were thicker than the strings we replaced, so they were fiddly to fit, particularly the C string. Ideally I should probably have replaced the tuning adjuster as well.
Excellent website and customer service
Pros: Excellent service. I wasn't sure if the strings I was ordering for my son's cello were right. I called and spoke to a very helpful person who confirmed that they were the right strings and within a few days they had arrived. Will definitely use this website again.
Cons: All good.
Great service, strings with character
Pros: Great service, good price, arrived quickly. Strings have character, being synthetic they sound a little different to standard steel. G string sounds mellow and rich D string is star of the show. Rich with overtones and is especially good for softer phrases. A is interesting, lots of overtones very 'gutty'. Now some people won't like this and will describe it as gritty. Personally I like it (and the fact it doesn't have shrill pierce as some a strings have)
Cons: C string is a little hard to activate for short notes - c and g a but forced sounding at 4th position and beyond.. may be a quirk of my cello.... Or technique. I must add these aren't the loudest strings nut I have no issue with that
Other: Been playing these strings for a couple of weeks, still improving in sound, still stretching a little
Pros: Good quality, mellow (but loud enough) strings.
Cons: None I can think of.
Other: I had been recommended by every cello and violin player I know to go for these strings - I was not disappointed. I too will now offer my recommendation :-)
