    Just want to know a bit about these strings, ie: are they suitable for arco/pizz, pros/cons, etc....
    They will be going on my 65' Kay if that info helps.
    Thanks for the info ahead of time! :)

    Thomastik Präzision are solid steel core strings. They are very bright.
    I haven't played the Thomastik Präzision yet, but similar solid steel core strings that are rather unpleasant to play and listen to.

    Better get Thomastik Superflexible strings.

    And they're quite stiff too!
    Indeed better to stay away from these.

    Only reason I ask is because I got the E,D, and G strings gifted to me, wondering if I should buy the A

    I'd recommend buying a complete set of something else.
    Those strings are nearly unplayable.

    Those are Super-Sensitive Red Labels, but Prazisions are as stiff and metallic.
