This weekend at jazz camp, out of the 6 DB players there (including faculty,) I managed to hear...everyone playing with Spiros in some combination or another. John Geggie - Spiro E and A with Obligato D and G Kieran Overs - Spiro E, A, and D with a Eudoxa Flatchrome G And the rest of us were all using straight Spiros, except for one bassist, who was using unidentified strings that he was changing soon after camp. I believe his had red silk at the tailpiece end with black windings on 'em? Not sure. Has anyone else used the Eudoxa Flatchrome G with Spiros? All in all, it was the sound that I liked the most -- although it's quite possible that was because Kieran Overs is an incredible bass player with a DB that costs more than my dad's Hyundai. How does the feel compare between the Flatchrome and the Spiros? It was a pretty balanced sound that seemed to really get rid of the electric BG-like mwaahhhh I always here from Spiro G's, especially in the upper register. Anyone used the Eudoxa D with them, too? My main gripe about the Spiros I have are the really BG-esque tone I get with the G string and the ranginess of the D with the bow. Is my solution to buy mix up Spiros and Eudoxas?
