"Brightening" my orchestral sound
My current setup is a Shen Rogeri Willow with Belcantos. My bow is a Prochownik pernambuco with black hair. I wanted an orchestral sound when I bought the bass, but it seems like it may be tad too"dark: for my tastes now that it's opened up a bit and my bowing technique improves. Is there a suitable orchestral string that would give me a slightly brighter, more articulate tone or should look elsewhere in my rig for the answer?
