    It takes a while to gather accurate and consistent information about the best strings, rosins, not to mention instruments themselves. Eventually some names show up more than others, as was the case for Larsen strings. The most frequent recommendations were the use of Larsens for the A and D strings on a cello. They are a perfect match for my Spirocore C and G.

    For my own cellos, I prefer Spirocore Tungsten C string and Spirocore Silver G string. For my students, I generally recommend any of the Spirocores for the G and C strings, to pair with Larsen or Jargar D and A strings. In general, the Tungstens are the most expensive and highest-resistance for the most power, the Silvers are a little less expensive and more easily responsive than either Tungsten or Steel, and the Steels sound almost as good as either of the others, for a lot less money. If budget is a concern, then a full set of Spirocore Steel, in "weich" (light gauge), is almost as responsive as Silver, or a full set of Prims if the cello tone needs brightening.

My teacher suggested that I get better strings for my Larsen cello. I had always admired the way her cello sounds, so I asked what strings she used. After getting these, I was amazed! The tone is so much more smooth and the sound goes outward. With some A strings, it sounds kind of metallic and, for lack of a better word, twang-y. These are nothing like that though. Even the A string is as smooth as silk. Over all, these are the best string that I have ever used.
