I have been trying to hear what using a complete set of Spirocore strings would sound like on a cello. All I can find is the Spirocore on C and G strings and Larsen on D and A strings. Why can’t I find a video with a complete set of Spirocore? They make the complete set, so the A and D Spirocore strings must be able to be played on a cello.
Does anyone know why a mixed set is pushed? Does anyone know where I can find a video with the complete Spirocore set on a cello?
My best cello is in need of new strings after 9 months. They are really bad and don’t hold their tune and are just blah. I was looking for a set that would have clearer crisp notes so I can pay attention to my intonation better.
Okay, the disclaimer. Yes, I know the strings will not make me play better, so please don’t start a discussion about people thinking a new string, bow, or whatever will make them play better. I don’t think people think that. I understand why people think people think that, but is has discouraged me from asking about strings. I am just very sensitive to the type of sound I hear. Right now, I need to hear a clear crisp tone in the upper registers, not the nice mellow cello I prefer. The mellow cello sound is not as clear for paying special attention to intonation for me and my ears.
Had anyone any experience using a complete set of Spirocore cello strings on a cello? If so, do you have a video of how it sounds you can share? What is your opinion of the clarity of the sound on the A and D strings in first position? What about all the strings all the way to sixth position?
Got a nice set of strings for my Goronok cello. I received an email from the semi-local violin shop I purchased my cello from. They were having a sale. I thought, “David sold me the cello and knows exactly how I play, and my capabilities.” I emailed Da id and asked about the sale on the strings and explained that I needed a new set for the Goronok. I explained my whole issue and my thinking about the Spirocore.
David told me he would recommend the Spirocore C and G. He knows I detest Larsen D and A. He suggested that the Jargar SPECIAL D and A would be more suitable to that cello and my liking, so I ordered them. I received them today.
Spirocore C and G are very powerful and very clear on this cello. The Jargar Special D and A are, so far, very nice and crisp and clear sounding. Exactly what I need. I need to get more playtime on them, but first thoughts are that they are exactly what I am looking for. I was flat on my middle F on the A string and could actually hear it as flat. I hope it keeps up.
