Hey there, I am getting new strings soon. I have been doing mostly orchestral playing but am getting into more solo and chamber playing. I also play a little jazz. Right now I use Helicore Hybrid Mediums but would like a little more sound. I know of a lot of players that mix-and-match strings and would be open to some suggestions there, too. I play a Karl Herman french bow with black hair and Pop's rosin. The bow is pretty heavy.
