It's been a while since I've worked extensively with the strings. It's a bigger section in Loegria, even in the half, I think, than SCS. But it's still a warm intimate sound, especially compared to Albion 1/One. The legato is more deliberate in Loegria than SCS as well, lovely imho and often better for slower lyrical stuff than SCS, though that has to be weighed against only being divided into strings hi and lo. Loegria also has two legatos, both full section and half section, for both high and low strings. One drawback is the low string legato is only two octaves and tops out at middle C (high, by contrast, is three octaves and a fourth). I remember that limitation to the low string legato being a bit of a pain to negotiate.How would you describe the Albion 2 strings when compared to SCS? Obviously there's the section sizes, but any sense of places that one can go that the other can't?
The con sord longs and flautando longs are also lovely, and I prefer the con sord longs in Loegria to SCS for most things. The flautandos are different from those in SCS but also quite nice. As many have mentioned the shorts are also excellent, especially the soft low shorts (and there's a good variety too, with regular shorts, CS quiet shorts, longer CS shorts for the low strings in addition to the pizz and col legno).
I'll also say that the Loegria strings layer well with SCS.
