Cellists prefer Steel strings. Although Synthetic core, and gut core strings exist, these are rarely used other than for specific, or unique purposes. Popular A and D strings have a solid steel core, such as Jargar, Larsen, Passione, Kaplan Solutions. Popular G and C strings have a stranded metal core, such as Spirocore, Helicore, Bel Canto. For decades, Cellists used Jargar A and D with Spirocore G and C. There are many alternatives with these brands. In fact, new strings on the market have these mixed construction type. Pirastro Permanent, Pirastro Evah Pirazzi, Bel Canto, and Pirastro Flexocore are examples of this. So, players don't have to purchase two different brands of strings to get this arrangement of products. Sets that are designed like this work very well as a set. Mixing brands can produce complications with tone and response, especially when playing double-stops between two strings of different brands. Check out our new Custom Sets of strings for Cello. Through a special arrangement with some of the major string manufactureres, we are able to offer an extra discount on sets of strings that feature popular combinations. A good example would be Larsen A and D with Spirocore G and C. Click HERE for Cello custom sets. Good news for small Cellos. Strings for small cello were limited to simple, steel strings until recently. Finally, serious players needing a professional quality string choice for small instruments have choices. Pirastro offers Evah Pirazzi in small sizes, as does Larsen. The new Larsen fractional sized strings are truly amazing, and priced very moderately to make them accessible to everyone. Helicore is also a step-up brand that is available in small sizes. For budget fractional sized strings, there are many choices, but D'Addario Prelude and Pirastro Piranito are recommended, popular brands.
