Good for the money, nice tone. Unstable at first
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Good tone. Doesn't have the richness that I thought a synthetic string would produce vs steel (could be my cello), saying that though, the tone matched that of a well played in Larsen A string that I switched with this synthetic. Considering the price difference, that's pretty good. Not shrill, has a nice clear tone, warmer than my previous Jargar steel A (that I had before putting the Larsen on). Also the string is very responsive, good sound from quick light bowing.

Cons: Pretty unstable, needs tuning everyday. I'm not talking minor adjustments, the string is flat in a day almost to G#. I've had it about 2 weeks, maybe needs more time to settle. On the plus side being synthetic it is quite elastic, and so much easier to tune than a steel.

Good value for money. Patience needed to tune it.
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: It has a softer feel under the finger tips than other steel strings and when it settled down it made a hugely better sound than the cheap ones my students usually buy.

Cons: I thought it was a D string it took such a long time to tune up to pitch. This was a totally different experience to any other string I have used for a student. I found this quite astonishing!

Ask me again in a month, when they`ve played in.

Pros: The tone is pretty good and,on my cello, fits in well with my Jargar silversound C and G. They weren`t too expensive either.

Cons: a bit difficult to make them play smoothly, the rosin needs to be just right or the bow hair misses its grip a bit, hoping they`ll settle down. I`ve cleaned them with meths to check there`s no grease or muck left from manufacture.
