D’Addario’s Kaplan™ Line Welcomes New Full Cello Set For The Most Discerning Musicians

United States
The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA (January 14-17, 2010), Booth #4834 - D’Addario is pleased to introduce the new Kaplan Cello Set, a natural extension to the high-end D’Addario cello line. The construction of Kaplan cello set allows heavy bow pressure without losing sound clarity in soft dynamics. The overall sound of the set is well balanced, rich and complex.

Kaplan cello A and D strings utilize a solid steel core and tonally adjusted damping for optimum sound quality. The titanium-wound A and nickel-wound D strings (formerly known as “Kaplan Solutions”) produce a full and clear tone. The new stranded steel core/tungsten-wound G and C strings, offer a great “bite” under the bow with a beautiful and blossoming sound. The Kaplan Cello set is available in medium tension and full size, while individual strings are available in all three tensions and full size. The Kaplan name has always been synonymous with quality, consistency and tradition and is well known under brands such as Kaplan Golden Spiral and Kaplan Solutions.

“I love the reliability, the sound and the power of the A and D. No saturation in the forte under a slow and heavy bow and a great precision and clarity in the pianissimo offering a great playing comfort,” says International touring cellist and teacher at the Paris National Conservatory, Roland Pidoux. “The diameter of the G string is right and makes the string easy to play with quite a bit of clarity. The C string has a magnificent depth and richness. The balance between the two strings is homogenous. Very good pitch stability … a remarkable set!”

“The Kaplan cello strings result from a rigorous regimen of research and testing with influential cellists and luthiers,” continues Claire Stefani. “These strings offer projection and balance, richness and complexity: a true new sound alternative for the most demanding musicians.”

The Kaplan Cello Set is available now, and retails for $326.00.
