great for playing arco and pizz!
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Produces a distinctly brilliant sound when bowed and it sounds excellent when played pizzicato, producing a very mellow timbre, perfect for jazz improvisations (the same with my Larsen C string!)

Cons: I've put it on my cello fitted with a pickup and when I'm playing through a speaker system, this string can sometimes produce quite a rough sound, I have a Larsen C string too so know it's not just my technique. The string also resonates on its own when put through a speaker system, although this might just be the pickup I'm using.

Other: I was using a Jargar before this current string and the difference in timbre is noticeable, this string has its own character. It's hard to describe, the Larsen packs a punch when you first play it whereas the Jargar simply produces a tone.

Nice warm sound, forgiving given my poor technique
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Previously I had larsen A and D strings and spirochore G and C strings on my cello, but the G string did not seem to respond well even after playing it for a few months. So I decided to change to a larsen G and it did not disappoint. I am really pleased with the purchase even though it is expensive (but at least it is not as expensive as some other brands which I had considered buying).

Cons: None

Great strings if they suit your cello

Pros: I've used Larsens on both my 1850 German cello and my Luis and Clark carbon fibre instrument and liked them. The c/f instrument prefers a Larsen Soft A and a Pirastro Permanent C. The German cello is fine with Larsens or Pirastro. Of course, every instrument responds differently, and my review is based only on what I've been able to afford to try! A certain dealer in Cardiff, where I bought my c/f cello and had my German restored, can let you try strings before buying, within reason. Very helpful.

Cons: No cons.

Other: Swift and efficient service from String Zone.

Expensive but worth it
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: lovely sound

Cons: price

Other: I bought Larsen string for my daughter's new cello.(it's second hand, but new for her) It was a big step up from her old cello and it had a set of quite old strings. It sounded lovely enough, but after changing them to Larsen and Spirocore, wow, it sounds more lovely and it resonates much better as well. It is not cheap, but it's definitely worth it.

Excellent value for money ad nice to play on.

Pros: Very nice string; I particularly enjoyed its tone, compared to the Prelude string that was fitted beforehand. Also the postage was so fast! It said that because it was free economy P+P it would take 3-6 days, but instead it took 2! I was extremely pleased!

Cons: Nothing at all - it was brilliant!
