pure quality at affordable prices; try them.
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: The A cello Larsen string is a string which is quite responsive, which I think is a foremost consideration. It is also in tone a warm, honey-like rich tone, never strident; but instruments do vary, so players have to try one on which is always worth the investment.

Cons: It may change a bit within the first 4 months, but they don't give way to a unpleasant difference of sound, just slightly different, brighter on my cello.

Other: They are "classy" the Larsen strings are!

Good replacement for the non-solo version
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Stayed at pitch well, even when just put under tension Slightly softer, more gut like sound than the Larson A I had put on previously Excellent and consistent tone over the length of the string- nice harmonics The open A is less harsh than most metal stents I have tried on my cello A definate improvement on the non-soloist version

Cons: Seems to have a power closer to a gut string

Other: Matched the other Larsen strings (D,G,C) well

Decent but not perfect

Pros: Retained good, bright tone quality without harshness of some other makes.

Cons: Not quite as nice a "feel" as the old Lycon strings but my supply of those has finally run out.
