The A- and D-strings have a core made from a single filament of high-tensile steel and are wound with chrome steel. The G- and C-strings have a rope core wound with tungsten. The A- and D-strings offer great brilliance combined with a warm core sound. The transition from the D- to the G-string is smooth, whereas the G-string offers even more depth and a greater sound volume. The C-string has a powerful open sound, vibrates freely, and offers enormous possibilities. The whole set offers great brilliance based on a warm core sound. These strings offer excellent responsiveness and control ability across the whole dynamic range, from pianissimo to fortissimo. Exceptional tuning stability and immediate playability; suitable also for electric or electrically-amplified cellos.
The different design of the three gauges results in distinctive sound differences:
soft gauge - warmer sounding set than medium gauge
strong gauge - considerable volume and brighter sound than medium gauge
