Amber Cello Strings- NEW Autumn 2016

The popular flagship Amber range is now available for cello

The Amber cello set offers a bowing experience closer to that of playing metal core strings. The sound is darker and more robust than the Brilliant set and feels more immediately powerful to the player. Amber offers more 'golden' tonal colours and we'd describe the tone as more immediately compelling and serious. As with all synthetic strings there is a settling in period for tuning and tonal stability which can take 3 days or so. Synthetic cello strings should be tuned using the pegs during the initial settling period (while the core is stretching) before using fine tuners.

Amber Warchal Amber

Amber rich and warm with texture

After a successful introduction of the revolutionary Amber E string, Warchal released the entire Amber set. Their aim is to achieve the sound quality of the best gut strings without any tuning instabilities. The set features a completely new core material developed by Warchal called W-Core.

The development team created 14 different grades of core tonal warmth and selected the optimal one for each of the strings, (A,D and G), to balance the set perfectly. The sound is rich and warm, but still has texture. The strings also feature a distinctive high quality silking design.


The Revolutionary New AMBER E String

Warchal Amber E String Spiral An innovative new string which has an astonishingly warm sound, no metallic overtones and doesn't whistle. Made from a special alloy and with a revolutionary new helix design to increase longitudinal elasticity, this E string seems to solve all of the problems found in conventional E strings. Available in ball or loop end.

Please note that the forte versions of the Amber E string used to have a more relaxed helix design in the packet as seen below. The helix for forte versions is now the same as the regular Amber E strings.

Warchal Amber Forte E String Spiral

The recommended distance for the E string string after lengths from Warchal:
Ball 701B - 34 mm - 44 mm (1.34 - 1.73")
Loop 701L - 45 mm - 60 mm (1.77 - 2.36")

When fitted, the spiral will extend into the playing area of the string.

If no fine tuners are fitted or there is an integrated fine tuner, the standard 701B E string afterlength may not meet the recommended range. However, the strings can be installed and will work, although the installation process is a little different. The string needs to be stretched first in order to correctly place the plastic tube bridge protector. The protector can be moved across the spiral once it is stretched. The version for integrated fine tuner tailpieces is now available.
