Hello there, this is my first time really hunting for good strings. I'm working with a Shen Rogeri Hybrid, and right now I'm mostly playing classical, though I do play on jazz gigs from time to time. The willow already has a dark tone, and I want to retain that without getting too muddy. Sustain, clarity is what I'm looking for. I currently have G/D helicore orchestral and A/E helicore hybrids set up, but I have had all hybrids and all orchestral on before. The D and A on my bass are ideal for the sound I want, it really brings out the dark tones and responds well in both my jazz and orchestral playing. I'm looking to replace the G, it's a bit flat sounding (to be expected playing jazz, but even arco it does imo) and I'm not sure at this point if to look for a brighter, or a warmer tone. I'd like to retain the dark tone, and I've heard/read of many choosing brighter strings to counteract it. Strings I'm currently looking at: Pirastro Flexocor Pirastro Flat-Chromsteel Thomastik Spirocore Also, if you want to comment about the other strings I'll take it, but at the moment I can really only afford the one. Any help, or experiences with these strings would be appreciated!
