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.
Absolutely changed the character and color of my cello. Previously used Larsen strings, which sounded fine, but I always felt there was a bit missing acoustically; perhaps a bit brighter in sound than I preferred. As it was time for new strings, I did some extensive research and narrowed my choices to Evah Pirazzi Gold, which I use for my viola, and the Il Cannone. After teetering on the edge for weeks, leaning first this way and that, I took the plunge with the Il Cannone (warm and broad) and I couldn't be happier. There is real resonance in the strings and they are quite user-friendly in their "playability". My wife noticed the difference almost immediately and noted the improvement in sound. May have found my "go-to" strings.
I love the thicker e string, it's gentle on the fingers and sounds more mellow and full in the upper register
I love the tone, projection and response of these strings. Currently I use A and D Oliv with Passione G and C and they combine great.
I've been using these strings for several years now. When I was first considering them my stand partner said that with some violins they work well. As it turned out, they are a great fit for my violin. Each new set makes me as happy as the first set.
The A and D strings are phenomenal. They are well balanced in terms of brightness and roundness of sound and combine great with other strings in the G and C. The sound is not metallic and gives a very good representation of your instrument’s qualities. This time I tried them with Passione G and C(Gut core) and I was very happy with this combination.
