Would these strings work on a student cello?

SHAR Answer:

Yes! These strings would work very well on a student’s cello. They have a nice tone and playability. These strings are rather durable, partly because the A & D strings have a steel core (the G & C strings have a rope core). They last a pretty long time, so you're getting a great value for what you're spending. They're reasonably priced for the next step up after beginner's strings; they would likely be a good fit for an intermediate, aspiring student. Overall, these strings are a solid choice for any student, especially one who's looking to try something new or different after using inexpensive strings as a beginner.

I’m just learning to play. What does medium, heavy, light gauge mean? Which should I buy?

SHAR Answer:

Strings are able to stay in place on a cello because they are held there by tension/traction (they are not glued onto anything). Strings have two ends; one end that gets threaded into the peg and the other end that gets attached to the tailpiece via a fine tuner (also called string adjuster). They form tension/traction between the two ends of the instrument; that’s what makes them have sound when played. When you hear someone refer to medium, heavy or light gauge (or tension), they're referring to the thin or thickness of a string, which can impact the sound and response of a string. If you're just starting out, I would recommend medium (also referred to as medium/standard gauge). If you’re a parent buying replacement strings for the first time and you’re not sure, I would stick with medium/standard gauge. Without getting into too many complex details, just know that there are many factors (diameter/thickness/gauge, raw materials, pitch) that determine your string tension. Your string gauge/diameter alone does not determine a string’s tension, but can play a part in it. Buying a matched set of strings (all medium, for example) could give you the confidence that the gauges work well together. The choice of which gauge to use is a personal one, based on your playing style and the tone you are trying to achieve. As you progress and become more advanced, you’ll likely develop more of an opinion about what types of strings (including their material and their gauges) that you like best.
