Soloists edition. Steel core, 3 tensions
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!

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

Pros: Larsen 'Soloist' 'Cello A string I discovered the 'Soloist' A string about a year ago, and have been really impressed by the silky tone quality it has brought to my old French 'cello. This latest purchase was for an instrument belonging to one of my students, and it has improved the sound significantly. The String Zone, as usual, have come up trumps with a very speedy and efficient service. Thank you again!
Worth the price
Pros: Worth the price.. excellent sound quality. Made my previous cello (intermediate model of about 1000 euro) sound 100 times better. and again my present cello (about 3000 euro) sounds very good with it. All depends on the other strings though. it's amazing how changing one string can change the sound of all the others, good or bad! I'm using Larsen soloist's A and D and Spirocore tungsten G and C.
Cons: No Cons
