2. New Strings
The rising cost of cello strings over the last decade has made many cellists unwilling to replace their strings on a regular basis. They’ll be very grateful for this gift and they might even play you a song with their new strings!
We recommend the following string brands per our best cello strings review:
Pirastro – Evah Pirazzi Gold
Used by professionals and beginners alike, Pirazzis offer a complex and warm tone with excellent projection and dynamic responsiveness. See on Amazon.
Very responsive sound that is both brilliant and powerful. See on Amazon.
