A lemon or a counterfeit of low quality?
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Loud and dynamically responsive.

Cons: A very strong buzz was evident immediately on playing the string, the buzz only observed when playing the D (both arco and pizzicato). The cello was checked for potential sources of buzzing such as the tailpiece adjusters and the scroll nut without success in identifying a reason for the buzz. I played on the string for a week in the hope that the string would play in. This did not improve the buzzing. I changed the string back to the previous Larsen medium string, with an immediate elimination of the buzz.

Other: The string was obtained from String Zone well packed , both inner plastic and outer paper perforated seals were intact on receipt.

Pros: Nice sound - smooth and rounded especially higher up the string. Easy to play

Cons: Playing nearer the bridge seems for me and my instrument more important for focus higher up the string maybe than with other strings, but that's not a problem

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.
