Cheap Cello Strings
While the word cheap can be a subjective word, there
are cheaper cello strings that are a great value for
your money. As a professional bass player, (and owner
of Cello Strings) I was truly shocked at how much cello
strings can cost. A lot of the time, it's worth to get
the best sounding strings for your cello. For most dedicated
cellists, the only problem they have is choosing the
right strings for their cello. This is a never ending
task because strings are constantly being offered as
new and improved, 're-introduced' and just new brands
come out every year. For those on a budget (who isn't?),
there are ways to maximize their purchase to get the
most for their money.
For the low end market (rentals?) normally come with
D'Addario Prelude cello strings. With slightly better
cellos, you will enjoy D'addario's Helicore strings.
Just take the whole set! Also, check the prices of the
Kaplan D and A strings. You can separately choose the
Helicore C and G, then add the Kaplan top two. Now you're
actually getting into a much higher quality cello strings
set up. Again, it really depends on the cello, the demands
of the cello player and your budget.
