I'm playing Spirocore Mittels at the moment, which I love the pizz sound of, and I can just about live with the arco sound for my purposes. I play arco a fair amount, though in an informal setting where I can work with the brighter sound. The acoustic volume and projection of the Mittels is important to me as I often play in acoustic settings. I'm suffering some left hand/wrist issues which my GP has just diagnosed as Carpal Tunnel related, and I'm considering going to some lower tension strings for a while. I suspect that my problems are triggered by my guitar playing rather than double bass (as the pain starting has coincided with an increase in the time I spend playing guitar), but while my wrist is a little tender I'd like to make things easier on myself. So, I'm looking for recommendations of strings which are lower in tension and somewhat bow-able which still have reasonable projection and can get me to that growly pizz place I enjoy with Spiro Mittels. I would also like them not to be much more expensive than Spirocores. Spiro Weichs might be an obvious contender, but I'm sure there are others out there. I've had Innovation Honeys before, but those are perhaps a little on the dark side and don't feel a lot softer than the Mittels. Velvet Blues have also been suggested as a possibility. Any thoughts?
