    Hello boys and girls,

    Am currently using Corelli 370tx, which I'm pretty happy with - clear sound, easy on the fingers, great for bowing.
    But,
    I'm curious about trying Jargers and would like to know which kind would come closest to the 370tx... Dolce, Medium or Really Loud.
    Anyone been on this path before?
    Thanks,

    Jon

    IMO, neither of them.
    The Jargars have a very dark tone.

    Thanks for your reply, Francois. I should have explained my question better.
    I want to know which Jarger string model comes close to the tension of the 370tx.

    Not an easy one.
    The Jargars have dampening material inside, which makes them stiffer.
    I'd say the Mediums, or somewhere between the Dolces and Mediums. :)
    I'm sending you an email.
