I have been using the Eurosonic Ultra Lights for about 6 months now and I have really enjoyed them for the most part. I like that I can use a magnetic pickup with them and they feel great. But, they don't bow well even after being scratched up and they seem to be loosing some of their tone after about 6 months. I am thinking about trying the Velvet Animas. These are the ones that I think Rufis Reid uses. How do these strings compare? -How do they bow? -Can I use a magnetic pickup with them? -Are they gut or synthetic, there seems to be some confusion on this? -What is the tension like? -How is the sustain? -Are all 4 strings wrapped in the same material? -What is the difference between these and the Garbos? Thanks for any help!!
