Excellent service - will definitely visit again.
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have always used Larsen string. Recently I bought a cello which had a wonderful rich, mellow tone on the D, G and C strings. The A sounded a little harsh with Larsen medium. I changed the A for a Larsen soft, and the tone across the instrument is now much more balanced.

Cons: There were no cons - this string did exactly what I wanted.

Other: I would recommend Larsen as they are reliable and provide the best tone. Thestringzone.com is to be highly commended. I opted for economy delivery, but the string arrived the following day.

Pros: Great tone. Bright and clear.

Cons: Nothing

Other: My cello had Larsen's on A and D when I bought it two and a half years ago. I probably ought to have had them replaced sooner and the difference between old and new is startling.

Larson vs Dominant for beginner instruments.
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: A lovely mellow sounding string which seems on face value very forgiving of my novice bow technique. Lower tension than the dominant which is also nice on the fingers and it seems much more responsive in comparison with the dominant too.

Cons: Not much to dislike really from my standpoint. Being an pro electric bassist I would definitely say the price is astronomical considering I can restring my 5 string bass with quality strings for around the same price as this single but I see that they are also cheap in comparison with other strings on the market. I would guess that if your instrument has a mellow sound to start with then the Larson A I bought might not be the string to use, maybe making it a little dull. That is however purely conjecture.

Other: My cello is a very cheap beginner instrument which is, I'm told by an experienced player, set up very well and not a bad example. Being a cheap instrument however means that it does have a harsh/ strident sound by nature. The dominant set a I put on it sorted the sound out to some extent but after using the Larson A I can definitely say I will be replacing the other 3 with Larson.

Excellent string - excellent service

Pros: The string quality is far superior than the original string that came with the Cello. The string gives a more mellow sound making playing more enjoyable. Very pleased I decided to use a Larsen string and to use The String Zone for my purchase.

Cons: There are no cons, very happy experience all round.

Other: Excellent service with a speedy delivery.

A little disappointing

Pros: Mellow

Cons: Not enough edge or high frequency. I found it too quiet in comparison with the Jargar I had used before.
