Huge resonance but needs a lot of playing in.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Hugely resonant, and responds quickly. (Fitted to Luis and Clark carbon fibre cello.)

Cons: A lot of winding buzz to begin with, but it's improving with playing in.

Other: Obviously string choice depends on the individual instrument and player.

Punchy, responsive string..strongly recommended!
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: This C string - together with the tungsten G string and Larsen D and A - has given my old French cello a new lease of life. The clarity of sound, attack, volume and response are far better than the Jargar strings I have previously used. Pizzicato on the C string gives a punchy, bassy sound to rival a double bass and fast passages are much easier to play than the comparatively sluggish, thick C string I used to use. It's well worth forking out the extra cash for a string of this quality, even if you're not a professional cellist!

Cons: None

Worth the money

Pros: Much easier to play than Jargar classic medium tension. Less effort and concentration to obtain a clean sound. A silky, yet gravelly sound. Had a metallic twang to it at first, but this has mellowed out after two weeks. Pleasantly surprised overall.

Cons: Price.

Worth the extra dosh.

Pros: Replacing one a couple of years old, only just going off despite lots of very loud gig playing. Easily up to pitch & quick to stay in tune.

Cons: Still a bit edgy on the sound two weeks, 4 gigs & lots of teaching after putting it on.

Great string - suits my cello perfectly

Pros: On my cheaper cello this is a great string, plenty of responsive bass and clear focussed sound. It has massively improved the sound of the cello and I love playing on it.

Cons: No cons.

Other: On a more responsive cello I imagine it would be rather loud and edgy, but on a cheap Chinese cello it's just perfect.
