Why bother buying anything else?
7 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: This string is without doubt the best thing I have ever put on my mid - 19th century (very nice) German cello, and this cello has seen Jargars, Dominants and Larsens. I will never bother buying anything else for the G string now.Even playing the string the moment it was put on, was a revelation.I cannot begin to recommend this string highly enough. Huge sound, absolute power, big, rich, dark, yet beautifully precise in sound. Lovely feel on the left hand, and the string responds to the bow in a very fast way.I would strongly recommend that you just buy it.It left me literally open mouthed. I didn't know my cello had it in it to sound like that on the bottom end.

Cons: Loved everything about it, but some cellists might find the sheer increase in power and extra tones a bit of a shock. There is also the oroblem of getting a good match on your D and A strings, as the Spiracore tungsten really is an incredible 'sound grabber'. Very expensive indeed, but well worth the money.

Other: Now I know why so many professional cellists use Spirocore tungestens on their lower strings. Although expensive, Stringzone are giving the best price on them.

Pros: Amazing depth and tone, no more shy muted cello! My teacher has been bugging me to upgrade to a new more expensive cello but with these new G & C strings it has given my intermediate cello new life! Totally worth the money

Cons: A little sandpapery sounding initially

Very good buy, great sound.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Loved the sound and responsiveness. I have to admit that I hadn't changed the G string on my cello since I bought it in 2001! So this was a revelation. Suddenly my cello sounded like I did when I bought it. I had read a number of reviews and am glad I bought this one although I am now intrigued as to what other strings may sound like.

Cons: None for me.

Improved lower register sound
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Delighted with the sound it makes. I have an early 19th century cello and the string has put some omph into the lower registers

Cons: None

Other: I replaced a Spirocore medium tension string which had been in use for about 5 years.. The low tension string seems to suit the instrument Old string was probably a bit tired

Excellent string
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Nice sound from day one but improving further as it plays in. Very powerful lots of volume and body

Cons: The obvious one is price but you get what you pay for so worth it in my mind. Transition to the D string needs handling too.

Grade 8+

Spirocore excellence.

Pros: Immediately a richer fuller tone. It seems tor react much more quickly. I have now bought the Spirocore G string to match the more powerful tone of the C. I am very pleased with these strings. They have made a big difference to my playing in the lower registers and I now feel more confident in producing a good tone in the higher positions on these strings.

Cons: Expensive. But worth every penny.
