Belcantos & Spirocores
Hi all! I have a question. I have a pretty dark bass and struggle to get the clarity I would like from my bottom strings. I love Belcantos on my G and D, but have been trying different strings on the A and E. I most recently tried Permanents, and they just did not work on my bass.
I was told by differnt people to try Belcanto GD and Spirocore AE. At first this scared me since I'd heard a set of Spirocores and they sounded extremely bright compared to the Belcantos, but I've been told that they break in and blend really well.
Does anyone have experience with this combination? (By the way, I am mostly an orchestral bassist.)
Thanks for any thoughts.
yes it is an often used combi:
Spiros are great and can be really versatile. For some folks, myself included, they can take quite a while to break in. Then, they're good for a pretty long time.
I currently use a Spirocore 3885.5W (3/4 Weich E string) with my Bel Canto A & D, and I find it a great match in both tone and response. It brightens up the E string, but being a slightly heavier string than the S39W (the E string of the S42 Weich set), it doesn't twang. The rated tension is a better match as well. My bass is a tad more mid-rangy, and I get along well with the Bel A string.
