Brighter tone with Dominant strings
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: The strings have made a fair difference to the tone of my playing; it is brighter and more resonant and the cello is consequently more rewarding to work on.

Cons: Slightly harsh to start with, but settled quickly into a good tone.

Other: Good service - very prompt and cost-effective.

Great service, strings with character
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Great service, good price, arrived quickly. Strings have character, being synthetic they sound a little different to standard steel. G string sounds mellow and rich D string is star of the show. Rich with overtones and is especially good for softer phrases. A is interesting, lots of overtones very 'gutty'. Now some people won't like this and will describe it as gritty. Personally I like it (and the fact it doesn't have shrill pierce as some a strings have)

Cons: C string is a little hard to activate for short notes - c and g a but forced sounding at 4th position and beyond.. may be a quirk of my cello.... Or technique. I must add these aren't the loudest strings nut I have no issue with that

Other: Been playing these strings for a couple of weeks, still improving in sound, still stretching a little

Transformed cheap instrument to sound good
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Excellent. Made a huge difference to the sound of our new beginner cello.

Cons: I have to put something here. They cost almost half of what we paid for the cello but they were well worth it. It was a cheap cello.

Other: They were thicker than the strings we replaced, so they were fiddly to fit, particularly the C string. Ideally I should probably have replaced the tuning adjuster as well.

Great value - smooth, mellow sound.

Pros: I fitted these to a new East European Montagnana cello partly as an experiment to use as a comparison between synthetic gut and steel strings. They took a considerable time to settle in to tuning, but I am sure that is partly due to the cello being strung for the first time. They have a beautiful mellow sound and very balanced across all strings. To get volume you have to push them very hard, but I expected this from synthetic strings. I have no idea how they would sound on a plywood cello. They are very good value for the price.

Cons: None

Excellent website and customer service

Pros: Excellent service. I wasn't sure if the strings I was ordering for my son's cello were right. I called and spoke to a very helpful person who confirmed that they were the right strings and within a few days they had arrived. Will definitely use this website again.

Cons: All good.

Would recommend

Pros: Good quality, mellow (but loud enough) strings.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other: I had been recommended by every cello and violin player I know to go for these strings - I was not disappointed. I too will now offer my recommendation :-)
