    considering buying this string because i have an A eudoxa and a G and D olive. i have tried the olive E string and it is dead and too big. wondering if the eudoxa E is playable with pizz and arco and if it has a decent amount of tension relative to the A, D , and D i mentioned......

    I used the Eudox E & A with the Oliv D & G for years. Terrific pizz setup, and they sound very nice with the bow, although they are a little less tolerant than the 180's I use now. You can overplay them, and they have a narrower sweet spot.

    Eudoxa E is great for pizz and arco. I found however on my current bass that I had to go to a steel string as the Eudoxa E just didn't have enough tension and didn't sound nor play the same as it did on a previous bass. That is an example that results vary with each bass.

    How about filling your public TB profile, pipeman?
    Gear, location, etc.
    Thanks in advance!

    was wondering if anyone would know if there is more tension on the eudoxa d string in comparison to the olive d string....

    Thanks for filling in your profile, pipeman.
    Yes, the Eudoxa D is higher tension or, at least, feels stiffer than the Oliv D. But since they're both gut core, I suppose they have more tension.
