    I'm currently using ultra lights. I've never used the lights. I started on guts, so I like big fat strings. I then switched to t/i spiro wiechs, because I wanted more sustain, and a somewhat brighter sound. I found the weich too bright for me, and way too skinny for me. After trying many other strings, I ended at Euro ultra lights. They're nice and fat, loose but not floppy under my fingers, bright enough, and plenty of sustain. I hear they don't bow particularly well, but that a little sandpaper scuffing can help that. I play strictly pizz, so that's not a bother for me.
  3. Hi ! I have tried the lights, they are very good for pizz only. If you are not obsessed with getting the lowest possible tension, the light or even the medium might be good. Since these are expensive, i am sticking with my set of lights I put on my bass alterning with the spiro. But i would rather have the medium for the Realbook stuff i play.
