What is your favorite G string that does it all with your worn-in medium Spirocores?
Obligato right now
there's also this: Spirocore G alternatives
Oliv. Love it.
I'm using an Oliv G with pirazzi D and A with Spiro E. gut - hybrid - steel
Spiro. I've got an EP Mittel G on there now, and as much as it adds to the set, it's just missing something.
because it's a great arco string that also works great for pizz?
this flex is a better match than than 92s or flex deluxe?
Yes. I don't use the bow much but others have said the Oliv and pirazzi strings work great with arco
Maybe try a Dominant. That what a few people use as spiro alternatives. Some people use the Dominant G because its the closest thing to a spirocore in the synthetic world (from what i've gathered).
I liked it and honestly it felt natural with the set but I didn't like it enough to get a full set of dominants....i think. I'll go back in my records and see.
The Flat-Chromesteel G is even more bright.
The Jazzer is another bright G string from Pirastro that could pair well with Spirocores.
Velvet Anima G
Until it breaks.
I've tried many and think Obli was the most successful
I'm using the G and D because they feel like Spirocores but have more meat to the note. I always thought the Spirocore G and D sounded nasal and buzzy.
Compared to Spirocore:
Oliv G: Larger diameter, tuning issues, bigger tone
Evah (Weich or Medium): more elastic and lacking the immediate note.
I have the EP Weich atop Spirocore reds on my Kay and they are nice enough.
I think a Superflexible G is a good option.
The Zyex G is good too.
It really depends on the particular bass.
