Sound Improvement

Pros: The string needed very little retuning after the first hour, in fact, during a couple of days when the weather has veered between torrential rain and hot sun it has only needed as much attention as the older strings. To my inexperienced ear there was an Immediate improvement to the cello's overall sound - I have tried five other D strings on my cello and this is the best tone so far. Liked it so much I have bought the A as well.

Cons: Nothing- great value and a lovely tone.

A nice string

Pros: This is quite a mellow string, with a nice clear tone, but also smoothness to it too. Not loud but then I don't really want penetration on a D string, just someting that blends well with the A

Cons: Nothing at present

Beautiful straightaway

Pros: This sounded beautiful straightaway. The Passione A string is also fine but the D string is exceptionally good on my cello.

Cons: None so far.

My favourite D string (so far)
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I switched to the stark version after finding the medium one a bit weak compared with the medium A. The stark D string has a beautiful, clear, warm tone with none of the harsh nasal quality you might expect from a high tension string. The response is instant and smooth, even on the open string, and it can produce a wide dynamic range without sacrificing sound quality.

Cons: The transition to the passione A string needs care because the sound is darker than the A despite being a higher tension gauge. I found the Helicore D a better match for the passione A, but I didn't like the sound or response as much.

Nice dark tone but slightly weak volume
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: It has a nice warm, dark tone and a fast response

Cons: I found the tone bit weak compared with the Pirastro Passione medium A string and the d'Addario Helicores that I have on G and C. Am currently using the Helicore D instead but if anything this has the opposite problem. I may experiment with the high-tension Passione.

A String That Perfectly Compliments My Cello
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: It transformed the sound on my cello.Before, with a Dominant D medium the sound on my particular cello was metallic and I had to be careful moving from the G to the D.Now it is a pleasure to play, a rich silky sound, yet with projection.Also I did not need to re-tune once the string was in place.An excellent product that suits my cello perfectly.

Cons: None
