Really pleased!

Pros: Lovely strings, beautifully packaged. Usual excellent service from Stringzone. I had asked about and these immediately DID improve the sound quality from my cello. Very quick to tune in. This was the first time I had put new strings on my cello. She came with a set of Jaeger's which I suspect may have lain dusty for 11yrs, no idea when they were put on before that. The G and D are a massive improvement, C is a bit boomy but a lot lot better. The A string was going well....

Cons: Nothing....but a grim warning..... Never ask an engineer with strong forearms to delicately and gently push and turn a peg prone to slipping....who also doesn't play strings. His response 'Oh well you can put the old one back on and buy another one like that next month'

If you can afford these strings the are worth it.

Pros: On my Granddaughts cello (4/4) I have fitted first Prelude strings. These sounded better than the factory strings. One year on I fitted a set of Jarger strings. These strings did sound better, (good A string ) Now another year on I have fitted a set of Larsen madium strings and WOW the cello has come to life. Have to tame the C string but its early days. I should have fitted Larsen strings two years ago, it would have saved me money.

Cons: The price put me off two years ago. ( I now know you get what you pay for.)

Other: My Granddaughter is grade 5+ and age 15

Great improvement in sound

Pros: These strings have certainly improved the sound on my Chinese cello and they are easy to play, (not that I am very good yet). Being a guitarist I know the value of high quality strings and these do the job very well.

Cons: None

New Larsen strings

Pros: All round good sounding strings. Replaced old set of Larsens which came with the cello.

Cons: A string has taken a bit of time to settle down -sounds a bit too metallic at the moment. C string is okay but lacks a bit of power at the lower end. Expensive.

Other: Shipped in good time.

Excellent company to deal with.

Pros: Your service was excellent. Very quick and efficient. I am very happy with the set of Larsen Cello Strings and I have recommended you to my students. We pay far too much for strings in NZ so we really appreciate the savings. Will definitely use your company in the future. Regards Dora
