Does the job.

Pros: It did just what I needed - gave me a softer A to go with the other strings which were standard Larsens, while retaining that lovely fat Larsen sound. I'd been using a Larsen soft, soloist A but found it too bright on my cello. Didn't need the soloist.

Cons: Nothing wrong with this particular string, but I'm finding that the navy blue spiral wrap round the orange binding has come loose on a couple of Larsens over time.

An excellent string, quality throughout the length

Pros: I loved its immediacy and quality of tone from lowest note to highest. Will replace other strings with this brand that was recommended to me by a young player.

Cons: There was nothing I didn't like.

A string enabling a lovely, full tone!
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: I like this A string because of its beautiful, mellow tone. It was a great delight to me to hear a different depth of sound coming from my cello because of this string.

Cons: I have found they are quite delicate and can break unexpectedly which can prove costly! For this reason, I give a 4 instead of a 5.

Super string. Speedy delivery. Excellent service

Pros: Having put the Larsen on I realised the string it replaced had sounded very 'thin'. The Larsen has a richness and sonority that brings the whole cello up a notch. I'll be replacing the D,G&C with Larsens as and when required.

Cons: no problems as yet

Other: The speed of delivery was amazing; ordered in the afternoon, delivered next morning.
