Gorgeous, resonant C string.
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Following on from my review of the G string and for all the same reasons, I am really pleased with the C string. I changed both G and C together and now have a fantastic set-up of Warchal Brilliant A and D and Obligato G and C. The C string produces the most quality of sound and resonance out of all the brands of C string that I have tried. It goes particularly well on my old English cello and it produces a clearer sound as well, although very close in quality to the Warchal C but this has the edge, with a bigger sound.. I am happy and will be using Obligato C and G from now on.

Cons: Nothing

Blends brilliantly with the G string.

Pros: A Fantastically rich string that held its tuning straight away. Brings my cello to life. Works brilliantly as a pair with Obligato G, which I have reviewed. Warchal A and D and Obligato G and C work the absolute best as a set they blend so well and bring out the tone and this is after a lot of experimentation with strings on my early !800s English cello.

Cons: None

Great gut-substitute
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Powerful and lovely rich, complex tone, very gut-like. The C-string is far superior to the G-string which, on my cello at least, is very dull in comparison. It also lasts well; I have had one on for 3-4 years and it still plays well.

Cons: None on my present cello, but on a previous one it seemed to be too high tension, stifling the instrument. This probably says more about the instrument than the string.
