Don't waste your money!!

This is not as advertised, a professional string. It has no volume, brilliant, warm or otherwise. It feels and sounds like I've put a piece of packing string on my cello. My mistake was to try a whole set of this new string. C and G are passable, the D string is as worthless as the A. Terrible purchase. Calling Shar about this was of no use as I had already installed them. End of story as far as the operator was concerned. As a busy professional cellist, I'll have to put my old A and D Jargar strings back on my cello for my performance tonight.

Versum Cello A

Silky smooth playing, and lovely sound! Great string. I just bought the A to try, but will buy a D also, and add them to Spirocore Tungsten G & C

I tried the Versum strings and while they are pricy I love the sound they give my cello! I had experimented with Spirocore, BelCanto, Larsen and Jargar combinations and this set has, in my opinion, delivered everything and more than advertised. The timbre and projection is seamless between the strings on my instrument and the projection is great. I haven't been able to push them yet to the "biting" point. My sound blends well with a section but projects when needed.
