    I have TWO full set of spiro weich for sale not sure the size but they have plenty of life left. These were in a pile of strings I bought. Legend has it that Thomastik changed the formula of spirocores and some people like the older style better. Thats what my teacher tells me. $125 Each. $205 for both

    I have an old formula Spiro weich E and A for $55. With that sale I will throw in a Golden Spiral D and G**.


    **I bought a pair of golden spirals on here recently. They were in not good shape so the seller refunded my payment but sent them anyway. Little bumpy on the windings. I strung them up and they look fine but do feel rough. I don't feel right selling them alone since I got them for free, but they are just going to end up in the trash.

    about when was that "cross-over"?

    Id be curious to know. (I have a few old sets thru the 90-00s, wonder when the change took place. I'm guessing during the mid 00's when the packaging was updated to that new box style?) I did really like Weich ages ago then for some reason or another I moved away (hmm, wonder if that was part of the reason?)

    My teacher noticed a change in the early 00 maybe late 90's. I think he had a set he kept on for a long time and a D string popped so he bought a new D and it was a "different" string.

    If someone wants just the spiro EA then the Goldensprial's are yours for the price of shipping.
     
  11. Ha! Thanks, but I’m surprised they’re still here.
