A pliant, resonant D string that speaks easily.
6 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: I am very pleased with the D string. It is very soft and pliable under the bow and next to the A string they are reminiscent of playing on Eudoxa and gut again, but they are much more powerful and speak exceptionally easily. Thumb position is much easier because they have so much give in them, it is easier to press the string down.

Cons: Because the strings are so stretchy, it takes a few days for the tuning to settle down and I am tuning much more from the pegs

Other: The D string is quite a thick string and it has a lot of texture when bowed. I prefer that in a string, rather than the thinner, metallic ones. Both Evah Pirazzi and Warchal D strings work well on my cello. Warchal, again, like the A string, speaks immediately.

Watched A and D strings best on my modern cello.

Still in love with the D string

Pros: Warchals just bring my cello to life! I wouldn't use any other top strings , but I blend them with Obligato G and C now, having tried the whole Warchal set, but I had to reject the G string due to inflexibility. Warchal D is an absolute gem of a string and along with with the Warchal A string, The blend is amazing.

Cons: Nothing

Beautiful string
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Clean, beautiful, expressive and colourful sound. Stable after a short break-in time

Cons: None

Other: I tried this as an alternative to Eudoxa, which has been my staple D string for many years. Its basic sound is maybe a little less rich, but is cleaner and more reliable to play. Added to its far superior tuning stability, this makes it a more useful string for me
