    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.
