Excellent in every way.

Pros: Liked everything. The site was very clear and made all simple and quick. Then when I rang for confirmation about delivery details the young man(sounded young anyway!) was most helpful and took personal responsibility to get them to me in time for my concert . And the strings are great. So you will be my first port of call every time from now on. Thank you

Cons: Nothing to declare.:)

Other: Keep smiling . Cheers

Very good, very expensive strings.

Pros: Good, vibrant, long-lasting strings. Not metallic in sound. Magnacore C & G particularly give added depth.

Cons: The Maganacore's are expensive. Maybe a lot of people buy Larsen because they are used by many professional cellists.

Good quality,stability and tone.

Pros: Immediacy, volume of sound, stability

Cons: C string is taking a while to settle in. Sounds a bit harsh still compared with the old Larsen but is improving.

Other: Arrived on time and safely packaged. Easy to fit to my Kennedy 'cello.
