Sterling silver on gut. The tradionalist's gut cored string
You get what you pay for
Pros: Lovely forgiving strings with a beautiful rounded tone - after I first got a set of these strings nothing else really has come close.
Cons: Does take quite a while to settle to pitch after stringing it up and doesn't like temperature and humidity changes. Quite easy to break if you are heavy handed tuning it. Expensive!!
A string for playing music
Pros: Beautifully smooth to play, lovely tone (if it suits your cello) and all the nuance and variation in colour of a gut core string. Don't know whether to put the many years it is before it breaks as a pro or a con!
Cons: Nothing, really, except the irritation of any gut string taking a time before it holds its pitch. But worth it for t he music it produces.
Worth a try.
Pros: Good bass sound, very rich. Blends well with most other strings but I have my cello set up with Eudoxa A,D and Oliv C.
Cons: Slow to respond, requires a good adjustment of bow technique but this is no way a bad thing, just a different way of playing. Usually stable tuning, temperature can play havoc sometimes.

Pros: lovely tone matches the other Eudoxa gut strings
Cons: Very expensive for someone who is not a professional. A shere indulgence. Hope it lasts longer than the last D string which broke after barely 6 months.
Other: Eudoxa gut strings are a class of their own and have a lovely mellow tone.
