Cello - Versum Solo strings

"The new Versum Solo G and C are a great blend of power, richness, and ease of playing. At first, I expected to run back to my Spirocore tungsten G and 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.) The new Versum Solo G and C are a great blend of power, richness, and ease of playing. I have used them with the Versum Solo A and 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!"
