The new set combines solid steel core A (titanium wound) and D (nickel wound) Kaplan Solutions strings and stranded steel core tungsten/silver wound G and C Helicore strings for a unique blend of tonal warmth and powerful volume, all while maintaining excellent bow response. It provides excellent balance of power and warmth across the instrument and is ideal for chamber music, orchestral, and solo performance applications.
“We’ve been receiving requests for a combination set like this since we first introduced the Kaplan Solutions cello A and D strings,” says D’Addario Bowed Strings Brand Manager David Luce. “The Kaplan Solutions/Helicore Combo Cello Set offers cellists excellent tonal balance across the full range of the instrument. They provide an ideal combination of warmth, power, bow response, and projection, as demanded by professional performers. This is a set of strings that serious cellists will be very pleased with, as evidenced by the enthusiastic responses we received from all of the professionals who have tested them!”
D’Addario’s Kaplan Solutions/Helicore Combo Cello sets are offered in full scale length in medium tension at a retail price of $219.00. They are currently shipping.
