    There's a thread asking about your favorite string silk, so how about string packages? Some of them are very boring, but others are quite attractive. Here are a few of my favorites:

    D'Addario Zyex: Abstract watercolor. Nice summer palette
    Pirastro Evah Pirrazi: Monochrome portrait. Who is she anyway?
    Pirastro Obligato: Title: Study of a tomato (aka Visit to Mars)
    Thomastik Dominant: Art deco scroll

    Anyone else?

    Gotta say I like the Evahs in this regard too. Oliv is quite nice as well.

    A full set of Velvets comes in cool packaging. Other strings feel like products I bought, Velvets feel like a birthday gift mailed to me by a german uncle.

    Ha! I've found myself also wondering who the woman is on the EP string packages.

    I like the Spirocore package, but only because I know what's inside.
     
  6. These kind of threads remind me of the Tennis Warehouse board (which I frequent) over Christmas, when there is no tennis to be discussed.... No criticism though...
    Are people having a bass break?

    I like it. Something about it I don't know.

    It's important to test the limits of just how nerdy Talkbass can be.
