    This past Sunday, a couple of my friends and I went to the Francois Rabbath recital at the University of North Texas. It was incredible. Afterwards we went up to Francois and while there I observed his bass, of course. I noticed that the strings that he used were dark blue and black. The strings sounded wonderful. Maybe I could get my hands on some of these and try them out for myself. What are the blue and blacks?
  2. Rabbath is a Corelli endorser.
    He helped the development of these strings.
    These are the 370M series.
    Tungsten wrapped E&A, nickel wrapped D&G, medium gauge.
    Also available in F and TX gauges. (and solo-tuning in M and TX gauges I think)
    These strings are made by Savarez in France.
