3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: the Larsen D for cello is similarly fine in response and gives a warm rich tone on the instrument; the match of both the A and D is a must, and is worth every experiment. I like the Larsen quality- we are lucky they became popular.

Cons: Cannot think of many contra comments- it is a classy string which makes sense, can possibly lack brilliance but furnishes a nice sound

Improved my sound

Pros: So much more character than Larsen standard on my cello. Fuller, brighter, more overtones, bigger dynamic range. I will be using Larsen solo again. Similar experience trying solo A also

Cons: None

Good choice for my cello

Cons: Nothing to contribute here

Lovely
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: It speaks and resonates! Another inner string that will stand up to me and give proper sound, rather than giving me a fight like my cello has done previously....

Cons: If anything I'd like more body to the sound, but that might just be my technique!

Other: Enhanced by the bottom end Magnacores, finally a (tonally) mid-range string that isn't compromised

One of the best, if not the best!
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: An excellent string, quick to settle down and great response across the entire register. I have been testing different strings for a new instrument and the Larsen D is clearly one of the best (specially combined with Larsen wire core G and C!)

Cons: Nothing

Pros: Stayed well in tune remarkably quickly when first put on.

Cons: Wolf note seems a little stronger on D string than with previous make of string.

Other: Feels different from regular Larsen, but I quickly got used to it.Haven't had it long enough to judge reliability or durability.
