Luthier’s opinion on the D’Addario Prelude for cello
The Prelude is a beginner’s string set that is easy to play and easy to learn because of its durability and precise sound. They are also an economical choice due to their affordable price. It is thanks to their pure steel core and the nickel wound used for their winding that they have such a long life.
Although available in sizes from whole (4/4) to eighth (1/8), which is quite rare, they are only available in medium tension. On the other hand, this is not really a problem since it is the most likely choice for a beginner’s instrument, whether it is modern or antique.
I recommend them to young and beginner musicians who have a limited budget but would like to enjoy a reliable product that will accompany them for a long time in the learning of their instrument.
- The strings are packed in closed bags to prevent any type of corrosion
- All D’Addario strings are designed and manufactured in the USA.
