Would it be possible to make some comparison videos with cello strings on a cello that has a tendency to be bright?
I am looking for strings to warm down my new cello.
I do not like the Larsen D and A for sure. It came with those and they are actually rather harsh.
Right now it has Pirastro strings: Evah Gold C and G, Passione D and Perpetual A. The D and A are the main issue. They are not as warm and dark as I would like. This is a string set Pirastro sent me.
I removed the cello’s original Spirocore C and G, and Larsen D and A. They were just too bright for my preference. The Larsen D and A were harsh. So, those strings are not necessary to include. This may give you an idea of what I am looking for for this particular cello.
I am looking for warm/dark tones.
I read that Olive are warm, but on the Pirastro site they say they are bright, so I am not interested.
I was reading where Jargar are dark cello strings, followed by Prim.
Would you be able to have your cellist do a video with Jargar and Prim strings on the same cello that has a bright tendency?
I use a snake wood bow, so if you have a snake wood bow, that would be great, or wood bow of similar quality. It is as $1k bow. I think the bow makes a difference.
If the cellist has another dark string set or combination in mind, could you have him/her sample those in videos, too, on the same cello with a tendency to be bright? I would like a bit of volume, but not blasting.
Could I be notified when it is done, with a link(s) to the video(s’)?
They call me, “Mellow Cello”
