Tried others but keep coming back to the Larson A. Focused, strong and warm.
These are the best strings for mine and my sweetheart’s new handmade violins by Darren Freeman in Portland, we tried the Il Cannones on both our instruments and they are of course great but there’s something about the feel and gorgeous colorful sound of the Virtuosos, we’ll be sticking with these!
These strings worked very well for me!
Shifting and string crossings without hiccups. Pure sound across the entire range. Amazing upgrade from the regular Evah Pirazzi strings.
Believe it or not, I received my first violin as a birthday gift 82 years ago. I have also studied and played cello and viola for many decades. I've been experimenting with most of the different premium rosins over the past 40 years - and most recently the Cecilia Signature rosins for VIOLIN, VIOLA and CELLO. I believe these are the best rosins for my bows and instruments I have ever used.
For the information of prospective purchasers, these 1/2-size cakes are the same size as the original Tartini and Andrea rosin cakes.
This tuner is easy to use and inexpensive. Great to quickly tune your, or a students, cello. Also, very handy before a performance for getting the piano pitch so you don't need to time on stage.
This tuner works amazing I tried many of them.The quality and the precision is great.
They have a very intimate sound, but doesn't lack depth.
By far the vision solo silver D and G strings are my favorites. I was not crazy about the A that came with the set because so swapped with a heavy gage Jargar A (blended better even than the Larsen A). The C string is ok but prefer the warmth and projection of a Tungsten rope core over silver. Vision would make my day if they came out with a Tungsten C string!
I am new to Pirastro strings in general. I am also new to using gut strings on my solo/chamber music concert instrument, though I have used gut strings on a baroque viola in the past for a Brandenburg 6 performance.
I have not tried a new brand of strings for years, but, recently, one of my friends mentioned that Eudoxa strings have beautiful sound that he especially liked, and I decided to try... I think I am now going to completely "convert" to using Eudoxa strings from now on. They allow me to explore and produce more sophisticated sound colors than my previous strings, and the instrument now sounds warmer, deeper, and "sweeter" if I want it to sound like that.
I find the strings incredibly responsive. They allow me to play in very fast tempi both in slurs and in separate strokes with a great clarity.
I should have tried Pirastro Eudoxa earlier! Highly recommended!
Loving my new GEWA Air 1.7 violin case! Incredibly light!
Dominant strings Medium Synthetic Core seem to have a much fuller sound from the previous set that were replaced. My daughter helped me string them and tuned them with 5ths temperament setting. This seemed to make a difference in the overall tuning quality. Thanks for the speedy
service to send my order.
Wanted a good bottom set of strings without the tension of most good Tungsten. I finally opted to buy Versum Solo G & C. This cello is a nice German instrument but not a high end name or model and about 70 years old. I had been using Kaplan which worked well but were a little soft in power and response. The Versum Solo are quite a change with more focus and power. The C has dramatically increased in response and grit. The G is a better option but not quite as pleasing as the C. Strings are only a few days in. I now have all Versum on this cello. I'm going to try the Versum Solo on my Italian cello when time comes to change. The less tension is noticeable which was my main objective, so I am pleased the chance I took worked out well. It doesn't always.
It’s a beautiful, warm C string that really sounds like a VIOLA! Not a trumpet blasting or a fluffy cotton ball. Easily my favorite C string I’ve every tried.
Versum Solo A and D stings combined with Spirochore Tungsten G and C are a great pairing. The Versum have a quick, easy response and the tone is warm, yet has a strong, clear edge. The harmonic overtones are richer and more present with greater clarity of intonation. Combined, the Versum and Spirochore enhance all the great qualities my cello already possesses: darkness, depth, power, and a complex color palate. I couldn't be happier!
