I am searching for an appropriate string combination for an older German cello that I have on my bench. With Larsen Magnacore mediums, it is far too crisp and tinny, with a good amount of projection. With Versum and Versum soloist, it is a bit brighter with more overtones. Larsen mediums are a bit too soft, lacking projection, but response is not accompanied by the tinny bite found in the others. I have only experienced Warchal brilliants one other time, years ago, and only remember the result was good, but do not remember how that specific cello was with different strings. Do any of you know what I might expect with the Warchal brilliants given these attributes? Thank you in advance.
Have anyone tried these strings, and if so, is there a noticeable difference between the 2? They are priced the same, and the website says the Warchal Brilliant VINTAGE is specifically made for antique instruments. Is this possible? And if so, how? What makes them better for Antique instruments? I played on someone's violin yesterday which had this strings (not sure if it was the vintage or just the normal), and found it had a absolutely lovely sound, so I would want to try it on my own violin. Just not sure about the Vintage vs normal kind. Thank you.
