    I have the Pirastro permanent solos. I like them a lot but there not the best for orchestra playing
    what kind of strings do you have now?
    what kind of bass?
     
  3. I guess you meant that they're not the best when tuned at orchestra pitch?

    Kind of but they dont have the big strong sound that other orchestral strings have. But they work okay in orchestral tuning

    ...However, I had a couple people ask me if I'm playing a differant bass, they say it sounds fantastic. This was in a chamber orchestra setting.
