Tungsten on steel and fibre core. 2 tensions
A warm, focussed & powerful sound, eliminating harsh metallic tones with minimum playing-in. Exceptionally long-lasting and described by many as the new natural choice for cello G & C.

Pros: It is so nice to find something, in this world, upon which you can depend- sounds great and is easy to play. There probably are others that just as good but we do not have the time nor the money to experiment.
Pros: It's great to finally have a string robust enough to give me the type and volume of sound I want out of my cello - all the resonances have been enhanced
Cons: That it is good enough to persuade me to fork out for another as a spare!
Other: Middle strings on my cello have always been hard to coax sound out of......until now
A most welcome newcomer!
Pros: Though a little metallic for the first few hours of playing opens up into a beautiful warm and responsive sound on my 19th century French cello. Has a wonderful effect on the upper strings too (Larsen A and D standard).
Cons: Price-doubtless stops it being tried by more cellists!

Pros: I play an electric cello, which can sound a bit scratchy as the transducers are in the bridge and pick up the bow sounds. These strings (I have a full set now)are the best I have had, with much less bow sound and in general an exceptionally clear, full, bright sound.I imagine they would be v good on an acoustic cello also. Pricey, but nothing compared to the cost of a good cello and bow.
