A lovely quality string with a good projection

Pros: Lovely quality string with a clear, focused sound.

Cons: Wasn't as warm a sound as I had expected.

Other: I felt that this string has very good projection along with the C string. The D was too strident and the A has a good, focused sound. I can see the C and G working as a pair. I prefer the Eudoxa G and D paired with the Oliv C.

beautiful and rounded sound

Pros: Beautiful sonority: immediately gave depth to the midrange of my cello.

Cons: Without any experience with gut strings, it will take some getting used to; but well worth the effort.
