I play about 60% pizz, 25% slap, and 15% arco. I like the feel and sound of plain guts, but the E and A are generally useless, and arco tends to be rather hard. Plus a really good set is a bit out of my budget. I've played superflexibles, Emerson guts, obligatos, and Velvet blues, and they were all good, but none quite what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a string that's got a gut-like sound, lower tension than steels, no metallic twang for the slap, and a nice arco sound and playability. I like the synthetic core of the obligatos and blues, but the steel and copper windings give the slap too much of the harsh "thwack" to me. If this string exists, I would like to know what it is, although I'm prepared to accept that I'm asking too much.
