    In gut we trust!

    After years of experimenting, and I mean REALLY trying everything, I am fully committed to Pirastro and their gut strings. Oliv cello strings, and in my case, the stark/thickest gauge, do absolute wonders for my cello. I pair the thick C, G, and D with the Perpetual Solo Strong A or Passione Strong A. If you find yourself in the market for new strings and have a luthier close by for any transition adjustments needed (grooves of nut or bridge), give them a try. Give them a REAL TRY, like at least a couple of weeks. You may hate them, or, like me, they may change your life forever, spoiling you with a new type of sound that just isn't possible with an all steel string setup.

    Wonderful string

    It took about 2-3 days to stabilize, but the string has a nice, full, and warm sound. Can be troublesome to tune at time but I think it's worth for the sound. Shipping took a little longer than estimated but no worries there.

    Warm and powerful

    I've been using Oliv strings for eight years and I love them! The C string in particular, has wonderful resonance and strong warm qualities. If you haven't played it before you have to get used to it as it is a thick string. If you and your cello like it, stay with it. Personally, I can never go back to steel again. I love gut strings!
