The set RO400 includes the strings RO41, RO42, RO43, RO44.
NO. RO41 | MULTIALLOY
The A-string RO41 was developed as an innovative synthesis of the highest tonal noblesse, maximum “inner” tonal density and brilliant openness. Regardless of dynamic levels and playing techniques, its barrel-chested voice and velvet-like sound texture give the RO41 a vocal character that is further enriched with a well-defined focus. A special feature of the RO41 is its almost endless resistance to bow pressure and articulated hard bowing techniques. Its gentle left-hand feeling contributes to an easy modulation of sound colors, even in the quietest passages.
All these attributes are present from the lowest to the highest registers with outstanding projection, making the A-string RO41 a preferred choice for soloists.
NO. RO42 | MULTIALLOY
The D-string RO42 is an extremely powerful and focused D-string that offers a distinctive deep and round tone quality. Despite its substantial warmth, this D-string’s fine brilliance imparts a special grace and transparency in its overtone spectrum. RO42 directly reacts to a progressive increase of bow pressure with a more intense and compact sound whilst retaining its open character, even when played with very high bow pressure and slow bowing speed. Its timbre can be easily modulated to reach a radiant and heroic presence – a quality that defeats the most common flaws of a weak D-string on the cello.
NO. RO43 | TUNGSTEN / CHROME WOUND
The G-string RO43 possesses an outstanding ability to modulate sound when changing the contact point. Velvety and dark tones can be achieved by approaching the fingerboard, vice versa, a small move towards the bridge will brighten up the sound. Like the other strings in the set RO400, the RO43 guarantees an accurate response due to its high resistance to bow pressure. In combination with the C-string RO44, the G-string RO43 blends the punchy and clear tone quality found in Thomastik-Infeld’s tungsten-wound Spirocore string S32 with an additional depth of tone and incredibly fine, rich overtone structure. The G-string RO43 represents the ideal image of a soloistic Cello G-string with its almost unlimited dynamic range and high sound intensity.
NO. RO44 | TUNGSTEN / CHROME WOUND
The C-string RO44 is the string with the richest and deepest sound of the setRO400. At every dynamic level the string reacts convincingly to subtle changes in articulation and playing technique. If desired, a velvety warm tone can be produced even with a clear start. Conversely, a direct bright tone can be produced even with a smooth start. This C-string offers an exceptional resistance to bow pressure. In combination with the G-string RO43, the C-string RO44 blends the punchy, crisp and clear tone qualities of Thomastik-Infeld’s tungsten-wound Spirocore string S33 with an additional profound tonal depth and great refinement. These attributes make the RO44 a first choice for accomplished soloists.
The set RO400 is perfectly balanced. Mixing it with different single strings can change its original character, which can be used to optimize its performance depending on your and your instrument’s needs.
With other Thomastik-Infeld products:
NO. VES41 | MULTIALLOY
When combined with three lower Rondo strings, the A-string VES41 adopts some of their qualities and sounds darker than in the full Versum Solo set. Compared to the A-string RO41, VES41 works on a lower tension level with a different string design, offering a broader character on most instruments. Especially when the cello’s A-string leans towards a bright and narrow tendency, using the combination with VES41 can be a great help.
VES42 | MULTIALLOY
To add more focus to the high register, we recommend using a combination of Versum Solo’s D-string VES42 and A-string VES41 with Rondo’s G-string RO43 and C-string RO44. Both the A+D as well as the G+C strings are available as twin sets (VES4142, RO4344). In this combination, more focus is added to the generally broader character of the Versum Solo’s A+D strings while making Rondo’s RO43 and RO44 slightly smoother and darker. Matching these four strings offers a resonant and warm sound, which allows especially the top strings to breathe and shine.
NO. S33 | TUNGSTEN
The tungsten-wound Spirocore C-string S33 is a globally respected reference string choice on the cello. Using this string in combination with the other three Rondo strings will give the set a more resonating and sparkling tone. The very powerful and brilliant C-string S33 itself becomes a bit darker while keeping its exceptionally crisp character. The upper strings, especially the A-string RO41, become inspired by S33 so as to increase their overtone spectrum and their sensitivity to bowing speed.
