This text is almost appropriate for this topic because it includes the Spirocore string. 😄 I don't want to start new thread when we already has this one where to talk about the strings.
I have had Larsen Crown strings in my cello. They are the cheapest so-called studentstrings. However, I changed the A-string to Larsen Original already in the summer, because the sound of that string started to get really annoying. It sounded way too metallic for my ear.
Now I feel that I have grown out of these strings, and I miss the different type sound to my cello. My teacher recommended getting the Spirocore C-string and the rest could be Larsen Original. He thinks these would work best with my cello.
I bought these but I haven’t gotten to test them yet, because we are going to change them together during my lesson. I’m looking forward to what happens to the sound of my cello, because the current strings doesn't sound very nice anymore.
@Mouse . As I understand it, your question relates to the “cheaper” two strings of the set of four. Sometimes, you have to let curiosity get the best of you an plunk down the $30 some odd per string and give it a go.

Ok, the new strings are in place now. Spirocore Tungsten C and Larsen Original G, D and A. My first thought is just WOW. 😊👍🏻
The sound of my cello really changed! It’s deeper and warmer, there isn’t that metallic sound anymore. It feels also easier to play, especially the C-string is much better. It feeled quite heavy earlier, I needed to kind of work really hard to get it ring. Now it’s so much easier. 👍🏻
I can tell more after a while when I’m a little bit used to these strings, but I really like them just now.
