The silver winding allows the string to be slightly thinner and produces a rounder, more gut like sound.

Pros: This make was recommended to me by my cello teacher - a bit more expensive than I hoped (buying all 4 was nearly Â£100) but the difference they've made to my playing has been worth it! The Jargar produces a much greater depth and warmth of tone which in turn has given me more confidence when playing. The strings I had before are like cheese wire in comparison!
A warm string that plays well straight away.
Pros: I have been trying several G strings on a new cello and this is the first one that does not have that hard, wiry 'tungsten' edge when you first put it on. Very smooth and warm sounding straight away. I chose the low tension version to keep the wolf controlled, which it does. It's also not very expensive compared with many others.
Cons: It might be a bit less powerful than some other strings, but if you match it carefully (e.g. with Jargar Dolce D and A), it should be enough for most situations. It could also be a good way to 'tame' a bright-sounding cello.
Other: It hasn't needed any playing in. Time will tell whether it goes 'squashy' after a while, as another reviewer has said. If it stays the way it sounds now, I will be very satisfied and will probably try the Silver Sound C as well.

Pros: My initial reaction was that it was a good mellow tone.
Cons: After a while it began to feel squashy and under-powered.
Other: It was an improvement on the straight Jargar, but I think I will try something else next time.
