Brilliant and individual

Christoph von Feline&Strange, 18.06.2016
I am a cellist at "Feline & Strange". We are very much abroad on tour and therefore mainly by plane - a horror scenario for every cellist.
I have therefore made the development of a VIOLONCELLO sounding e-cello that fits INS HANDPACKET! My prototype, based on a YAMAHA SVC50, now has the fireside with various flights, many security checks, stage performances and studio recordings behind them.
The strings I have in my prototype unfortunately still always lose weight. This does not like every string.
The Belcanto Gold G and C strings have more flexible ends and are quite easily rebuilt - somehow you have exercise. The A- and D-strings do not have that. In the case of the repeated clamping, there is then a risk that the string is twisted in itself, which then leads the string noticeably with a bad response.
How do the strings sound? I have tried different strings of various manufacturers. The A string of the Thomastik Belcanto Gold Set was the first one to hit the cello shortly before a performance (after a string break) with a completely different set. The brilliance and the overtone richness are really striking - Since one gets really desire to go also in the highest positions.
This overtone richness makes the strings particularly interesting for every E-cello. However, the strings are also times "offended", if something is not completely one hundred percent correct and then have "speech difficulties". For a beginner or a student, these strings are therefore rather difficult to play and in the worst case, this leads to frustrations.
The workmanship is very good, although the fabric wrapping the happy touralltag likes to quit with fusseln - not bad but unsightly. Apart from that, I'm not torn in my very energetic game, even though I use "brutal" playing techniques and also like to work with plectrum. Not even the winding somewhere!
Topic Stability: After a few exercises in the studio the strings kept the mood very well. Large temperature fluctuations naturally lead to changes. If the strings are acclimatized for half an hour, this is no longer an issue.
AND GOOD LAST: Gold-colored strings on a black cello just look like a hammer!

Belcanto Gold

Silvana F., 19.07.2013
The purchased Belcanto gold strings have a nice warm sound. They also sound very long. The A and D strings are particularly noticeable by their beautiful complex sound.

The G string sounded light metallic / tinny, but this phenomenon has been repeated. Now it sounds low, resonant with the C string and is not too soft! The strings speak up immediately and are very playable.

They sound beautifully bright and balanced in the high positions and are easy to play through their "hardness" medium. Finally, the strings (if for the first second time) are immediately in the mood and hold them also.

Conclusion: I can recommend these cello strings unrestricted.

Regards
