    So right now I am playing passione solo strings tuned down and I am in love. However the A string doesn't sound very good, and the E strings is so-so. My question is, what strings could I use to replace them that wont have an insane difference in feel or tension.

    Arco? Pizz? Style of play? What sounds "so-so" or "not very good" to you? Describe what you're after (and not getting) and someone may be able to offer some suggestions.

    I'm doing solo stuff almost entirely. I don't like the color I am getting, it's dull and not so nice. The E sounds fuzzy and the A more raspy.

    Solo Flexocors Deluxe are nice and clearer sounding than solo Passiones.
    So are solo Permanents, but they're even more brighter.

    The Permanents are too bright, and the flex 's don't have the right feel. Are the Jargers similar? What about doms?

    Jargar Dolces are very dark.
    Similar to Kaplans.

    Are they similar sound wise to evahs? I have no experience with them, and I don't have much with Kaplan
