metal/gut fusion
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Clarity of articulation and sound of a tungsten string combined with the resonance of a conventional gut string. It also stays in tune much better than a silver wound gut string (though not quite as good as a metal string).

Cons: It still has the 'tungsten shriek' - annoying if you are used to gut strings

Other: An interesting mix of two very different strings which I suspect will suit only some players/cellos. it doesn't quite have the organic quality of silver on gut, but it does have the resonance, so if you love gut but find your cello too wooly, and constant changes of pitch during concerts maddening, this might be the string for you. You will find yourself often playing further from the bridge than with a silver on gut string; in flautando really well over the fingerboard, but you will get used to that. The G string is similar, but the D string has no gut in it and I found I gained nothing from it over a proper metal string.
