The new Thomastik Versum cello G string delivers a; rich and warm velvety lower string sound with power, projection and focus
I'm on my third set of the Versum strings. They respond easily and produce a clear and focused sound. Sometimes I find the G & C to be a bit metallic sounding, but I believe it is more noticeable when the season changes (I live in a four-season area).
Julie, at Concord, is the best! She's knowledgeable and patient.
These strings are a big change, but very good on my cello. The upper register is less edgy, and that has inspired me to feel less shy "up high". Since I've changed my strings, I've received many compliments, performing in churches, and also in very dry acoustics. The D string is more lively than my Larsen was, and the G and C work well, they seem comparable to my previous Spirocore Tungsten mediums. I do feel the need to compensate for a somewhat delayed response of the A, I need to really put a front on each note to get it to sound vibrant immediately, but that seems good, and I think it's the trade off for the warmth and roundness of the A in the upper register, which I'm really loving. Highly recommend!
Great service and price from Concord! I decided to try these strings hoping blindly that they would be warmer than the Tungsten Spiracore I had on the bottom strings. I had been using Larson on top. I had been quite happy with that old combination when my instrument was in good adjustment, but with the colder, dryer Autumn air the "A" especially was sounding too open (in a harsh sense) and the lower strings had a coarseness I didn't like. So, Versum! I do like them! They feel smooth, flexible, and a good bit rounder and warmer than my old set. I think they still have core and enough power but they may have a little less volume than my other set...or is it just that they have a more beautiful, less textured sound?
An excellent set shipped quickly at the lowest available price. These strings have the best combination of tonal warmth and projection I've found for my cello.
This is an especially well balanced set. The A and D strings have a pure & brilliant sound, slightly brighter on my cello than the Jargars. The lower strings have power like Spirocore tungsten strings, but less brassy and warmer. I'm very pleased with my purchase and the fast service!
