The Perpetual cello A string Medium, was a perfect match for my cello. Timbre description: warm in 1st octv. opens up in tne thumb position. Really matches with my Jargar D and Larsen Tungsten G.
Check it out
Clarity, richness, feels good for the left hand, both bright and dark, not overly neutral but also not colored in a contrived way like Pirazzi Gold. The Larsen A blends beautifully with this set. Very quick and responsive but I feel I can shape the sound easily as well.
These are another great string. I would put these up against the Rondo's or Dominant Pro's. They are maybe slightly warmer in sound compared to Rondo's but still have great projection. If you like Rondo's but don't want to bust the bank for them I would give these a try. They are a bit on the high side price wise but cheaper compared to Rondo's.
Like many musicians I've gotten stuck using the same strings, over and over again. I heard a colleague talking about putting the Jargar Superior set on a violin she was trying...and she was amazed at how the strings transformed an already very serious violin to a magnificent violin. I immediately ordered a set for my violin and I felt the same thing. Suddenly more open, warmer as well as brighter in upper registers, more responsive. These are my strings now!!!!
The Passione G and C have become my preferred choice for lower strings. Their sound quality and projection are a perfect combination with steel strings of your choice for A and D or even other gut strings. A gold label, D Oliv and C and G Passione is my current set up.
I started playing at 8 with Wondertone and for a long time I thought there was only one kind of string. 😄
Over the last 60 years I can’t say I’ve tried them all, but a lot of them. Obligato has the deep resonance and overtones I love in the Olive guts but without the stretching problems. They are low tension compared to other strings and soft to the touch.
I’d highly recommend the gold platted E because to me it sounds great. Obligato is very affordable for the quality of string and I got mine from Concord Music less than Amazon.
I was really feeling very unhappy with my cello, but didn't know the problem. I got it checked out and had my bow rehaired, but I was still not happy. So, I decided to try some new rosin. This really helped. I'm still not 100% happy with my cello (it might need a new bridge), but the rosin made a nice difference.
This is the finest quality fine tuner available. The others are more common but do not perform as well. To me it is absolutely worth a little more money.
Passione by far my favorite strings. First of all, it makes very worm sound without loosing the power. Secondly, these gut strings are very friendly for tuning. It doesn't stretch for weeks like other gut strings.
These strings are the best that I have found. They produce a fabulous sound, big and refined, and are very easy to play on. Pricy but worth it.
I love these strings. I previously used magnacore medium and strong, and the softness and response of the Arioso is better and I don’t miss any of the projection. I’m able to loosen my bow hair which takes some edge off the sound
These strings are nice, full and rich sounding. I especially like their quick and easy response. It is necessary to avoid too much bow pressure with them as they can easily sound choked.
This review is regarding the 'Soloist' version of the several types of Perpetual C strings available. Previously, I had been using the 'Edition' version for about 2 years and found them to be
fantastic. However, the 'Edition' set has a problematic A string, at least for my cello. This set solves every problem I can think of, from powerful and warm projection to excellent response on all four strings. The A I am using, though, is the 'Stark', and it is quite the finest A string I have ever used. In short, these strings are the very best yet!
I’ve always favored the Pirastro line, and these, to me, are superb. Although close in price to the Evah Golds, the difference in sound and timbre is very much worth the slight increase. They sound as wonderful on my 1919 French cello as they do on my only a year old 1750 Carcassi copy. I am very very happy with the sound and the ease of playing…great depth, warmth, and clarity.
My violin is old and somewhat infirm, so I like lower tension strings in general. Have used Vision and Larsen Tzigane strings in the past, I tried these on my daughter's recommendation. They settled in very quickly, are very quick to respond, are even across all the strings, and have a lovely tone. The helix E does not feel unusual in any way, and sounds pretty good. Am buying another set right away.
