I've got a BSX Allegro and it came with strings I don't recognise.
Yellow yarn. On top is green, with a gold braid.
I -thought- it was helicore hybrid, but I thought those were more purple yarn.
In any case, I'm finding these -really- stiff (or rather 'hard'). I mean they are literally tougher to play pizz than other strings I've had. Also, pretty bright (almost 'metallic') sounding.
a) What are these?
b) Suggestions on replacements that are softer/less metallic sounding?
