Review of Larsen Magnacore Arioso Cello String, A

Singing A string with warmth and carrying power

Pros: The Arioso string is very different from the standard Larsen A - it still has the warmth but it is more ringing and bell-like. A definite improvement to my ears, and it settles very quickly once on the cello. I'm using it on a contemporary instrument, which is inherently fairly bright, and this string takes any edge off the sound, which is what I wanted.

Cons: None.

Other: Time will tell how long it lasts. In my experience standard Larsen strings can become a bit dull after a month or two, so if this doesn't it will be the ideal A string.
