At first, I expected to run back to my Spirocore tungsten G+C, but weeks and months later, the honeymoon is indeed not over. I love these new strings, and feel as though this change is a “forever” one (even though the Spirocores are still fantastic). I have used them with the Versum Solo A+D strings on all the instruments I own (JB Vuillaume, Goffriller, Gagliano) and the LA Philharmonic’s Stradivari and I have arrived at the same conclusion on each instrument: these strings are truly amazing. The most dramatic difference for me was with the Vuillaume, which seemed to take on another sonic dimension – even greater depth of sound – from before. The Versum Solo set also has a terrific bonus: longevity. Never have I had a cello string last as long with such freshness and also very little initial playing-in time. Bravissimo, Thomastik-Infeld, for achieving the impossible!”
