Jargars still a great cello string for all players
25 out of 27 found the following review helpful

Pros: This set went on a superior student Hungarian, semi-hand made cello. This is my son's new cello and the strings on it were dreadful. I've found through experience that Jargarsoften sound very good indeed on more modern instruments and they are built to take the strain of a fully metal string. I played the strings in myself and found them lovely. The feel on the left hand was good and smooth as usual and the bow 'bites' into Jargars nicely, so you can produce a good sound without too much bow pressure. There is a good even sound across the tonal range and this set of strings has been very good.

Cons: Perhaps the A string is just a little too harsh for this particular cello. It's still far better than what was on it before, but I think I'll replace the A string with an old Larsen I've taken off my cello, which will still give power, but a softer more muted sound. By the way, I replaced the Larsen on my own cello with a Jargar Forte A string and the results have been fantastic.

Other: This set of strings is excellent and has brought new life to this cello. I recommend if possible to mix and match your strings to your instrument. I have found a combination of Larsens and Jargars very good indeed, and I run both of my own cellos on this combination.Jargars are still in my opinion, one of the best strings on the market for cellos, and they can be right for your cello, even very expensive and valuable cellos.

I have to practice more to deserve such strings
3 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: They arrived quickly at a sensible price. They were adequately packed and well invoiced. They did not break during installation to the cello! They sound more mellow than the strings I used before. After one week, I am still very pleased with them.

Cons: No complaints so far.

Other: My teacher's advice was very valuable - he recommended Jargar strings, and the type I should order - and where I should buy them. Since he is a musician of growing importance (Arturo Serna from Venezuela) and a superb teacher, I took his advice and am delighted with the result.

Highly recommended.
3 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely tone, once they are played in.

Cons: I've found that they take about a month to play in and settle down, but once that has occurred, all is well.

Other: I've always used Jargar strings - they suit my frequent playing very well. These were good value for the money and delivered extremely quickly.

Lovely, consistent, mellow, oaky tone.

Pros: I have picked up my cello again after 30 years. It's a cheap student model & the original strings were harsh & worn. I can't afford a new cello but an investment in decent strings has made a huge difference. The Jargars are much more mellow in tone, but consistent and balanced across the strings. It's much easier to make my cello sing, and it's much easier to hear what is due to my poor technique rather than my old strings. It would be interesting to compare with other strings, especially after reading the reviews, but I'm very happy with these & would probably get them again.

Cons: They don't need a lot of rosin - they became quite scratchy quite quickly with a couple of rubs of rosin so I'll back off on this.
