    5 string 42" scale EUB (like NS, Azola, etc). What strings do you use - pizzicato & bowing (mostly pizz.)?

    I have an NS CR5 and just bought some Pirastro Flexocor Orchestrals and they sound much better than the original strings - huge difference!!

    So the original strings sounded much more like fretless BG - especially on Pizz solos, high up on the G - the Flexocors sound much more like real DB strings!! ;)

    There was a long thread about it here recently, which helped me decide :


    Thanks again francois!! :)

    - if you have a look around, there are lots of discussions about what's available and why you should use them.
