Tungsten on synthetic core
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful
Pros: I was keen to find a replacement G and C string to go with my Warchal Brilliant A and D, The Warchal G was always hard to break -in and so my quest for a more pliable and resonant G string took me to try out Obligato, as they also have a synthetic core. .Having tried several different types of G in the last couple of years, through Larsen, Eudoxa, Evah Dominant and Warchal, Obligato is the most resonant and smooth that I have tried. It blends well with my Warchal A and D and I am really pleased with it., it produces so much resonance and a lovely sound that carries, with a lot of power.I found that the string maintained pitch after a couple of hours and there were no issues with tuning and the sound across all of my strings is even, full and rich. I am so glad that I tried this brand, it is in my opinion, the best G that I have tried on my 200 year old English cello, the synthetic cores bring out more qualities in my cello sound that all-metal or all-gut have not quite managed to do. I will now use it all the time, along with the C string, which I will review...
At last, a G string that is gorgeous.
Pros: A Fantastically rich string that held its tuning straight away. Brings my cello to life, where other G strings have been inflexible, created too harsh a sound, or just been an absolute pain to blend with the C string. For my cello, Warchal A and D and Obligato G and C work the absolute best. and this is after a lot of experimentation with strings on my early !800s English cello.
