Good day! I will begin this by saying I have searched for a thread similar to this but have not found one.
My question to you is this: Do you use different brands of strings on your DB at the same time? I've seen a number of comments to the like but I'm super curious as to what each of you is using and why.
So please tell us the Following:
Is your Bass: All Ply/Hybrid/Fully Carved?
What Style Do You Play?: Orchestral/Jazz/Rockabily/Psychobilly/Blue/Other that I'm not familiar with
Do you Pizz or Arco or Both? Percentage? Bow Type?
For my E (Or C-Extension) I use:XXXXXXXX because XXXXXX.
Etc, etc..for each other string
I have a Shen 150 Hybrid.
I play mainly Orchestral
Pizz: 5%, Arco 95% (French Bow)
For My E I use Dominants because I find them nice and bright, have a very nice volume and project very nicely.
For My A, D, and G I use the first set I got with my Bass, my Belcantos. So far I like them because of the creamy bass sound I get out of them.
Please post away.
I am excited to see what everone else has for a setup and why they made those choices.
