Apparently A strings are supposed to break every six and a half months. Or at least mine are. Seriously. There’s suddenly an inch and a half long section where the winding is almost totally undone. Really. This is the second time this has happened. On two different brands of strings and in two totally different places on the string itself. Grr.

  1. Yay! New strings day! Now, what to get? Change the Jargar A&D for Larsens and put Spirocores on the G &C? Hmm, nah everyone does that. How about Dominants? My teacher plays these and they sound lush. There again Evah’s have rave revues. Or or go old skool and get gut.

    Oh decisions decisions….

    Happy new strings day Elysia!

  2. Gah! Not Larsens! They were my first A&D and I HATED them. (Hated the Helicore C&G also.) I just went out and bought a single Jargar A to replace the one that broke. So boring, but theoretically the other 3 should be fine. Thus, it’s happy new string day, not new strings day. Wish I could try other strings without the risk — kinda expensive if I hate them, ya know? My teacher likes dominants also and recommended them to me, but the Jargars won out because of price. And since the Evahs are like four times the price of the Jargars there’s no way I’m going to try them. Probably ever. Unless someone gives me a set.

    Today was all crazy for me. I set aside 4 hours during which I had nothing to do but play. Unfortunately, things kept coming up that I couldn’t get around (including needing to go out and get a new string.) I ended up with only about 30 minutes of practice, all of which were horrible because I was so stressed out and upset. So I guess it’s kinda unhappy new string day for me. šŸ˜¦

  3. When we had our daughter, someone described those early on times as ‘falling through the days’. Sounds like you’ve had a falling through the day kind of day.

    And yes, it was one of those kinds of days. Hopefully tomorrow is not. I have absolutely no obligations tomorrow, which I hope turns into more hours of celloing than I can possibly handle. *Resisting urge to re-type that as Handel*
