    check out the Thomastik Dominants next. I tried the Obligatos and quickly moved over to the Dominants (I got them both at the same time) A little higher tension kind of a half and half sound (gut/steel...a little more on the steel). Some guys are buying the solos and tuning them down a step to normal tuning. I have not tried that yet, but I have one of these tailpiece adjusters that allows you to set the string tension kind of where you want it.
    Happy H

    Hey Flatback -
    thanks. Acutally - I tried the obligatos cuz I gottem for $90 from a freind with an endorsement. I am actually sticking with the thomastik metal strings- what I have been using forever - the weichs - with an orchestra G - sometimes I step over to the super flexibles. I tried the dominants on todd Coolmans bass recently and they felt like Telephone cables to me :oops: but I could see why a lot of players like em. My Juzek was set up with Neck alignment for for really nice tension with metal strings.. so I am gonna stick with what I know. Hey, by the way - I will be out there on tour through the month of February and the begining of March - lets try to hang a little bit. I will post some picks of my new juzek soon
    happy Holidays to you and Lisa and ofcourse..lucian!
    ciao

    Andrew!

    That's funny, I had Obligatos for 3 days and hated them. Moved to Velvet Animas now and they rule.
