The sound disappeared after a couple of weeks.
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: The initial vibrancy and smoothness across all the registers and tone quality of C G and D strings.

Cons: A string was always disappointing on my cello .Lacked power and tone. The set went "OFF" very quickly, so too expensive to justify using them again.Very disappointed at the short lifespan.

Other: The strings were vibrant from the outset and I really liked them, but within a week or two the sound disappeared and I was back to square one. It is a huge amount of money to pay out for such a short string life. They are still ok but nothing like they were.I am going to be trying out some new sets next week. What a shame , they were so nice in the beginning but I just cant afford to replace them every two weeks!

Rich sound! Speedy delivery! Highly recommended!

Pros: Gorgeous sound!!! Super-resonant, rich tones. I am especially delighted with the sound of the A string, which is lovely and luscious, and not the usual whiny A string! So very happy! And, these are my favourite cello strings! Highly recommended!!!!

Cons: The C string is a bit hard to control...almost too resonant.

Other: Super-speedy delivery!Strings arrived the next day! Fantastic service! Thank you so much!

Lovely, reliable strings. The top choice.

Pros: Straightforward to fit - I tuned them about a tone low in the evening, up to full pitch in the morning. They settled straight away with very little fine tuning needed. Immediately the strings were warm-toned and a joy to play on.

Cons: Nothing negative.

Other: Still my favourite strings. At #150 very good value!
