1 out of 1 found the following review helpful
Pros: Very smooth, resonant G string, quite a thick string. The whole set are even.
Cons: Initially I found this string the most difficult of the whole set to settle on my cello. Days 1 and 2 were difficult because it had that "new" metallic edge and open G stuck out.I practically sawed my G in half for 2 days LOL and played it lots. Now I am at day 3 it has settled down. It also exacerbated my Wolf note.
Other: After 3 days the string is making the sound that I have been wanting from my G. The Wolf note has now settled down and the Open G has mellowed.
Deep, rich and powerful
Pros: Lovely deep, rich, powerful, masculine sound. Stable once it has finished stretching.
Cons: Needs a short and easy stretching period and a longer more gruelling playing-in period, during which it is rather rough and unpleasant.
Other: Having started using the Warchal Brilliant upper strings coupled with low tension metal C & G, I thought I was happy with this combination, but eventually curiosity got the better of me and I ordered the lower Warchals to try. After playing in they rounded out and took on a more masculine, quality than the metal strings they replaced, with a more gritty edge. Metal strings always seem slightly superficial to me, but these really seem to get to the heart of things and stir the very bones of the instrument into life.
