    I am interested in setting up my 1920's Czech with a set of high tension and low action strings. I prefer a thicker guauge but nothing too big and tight.

    The Jargar strings seem temptting, is there anyone out there that is using either the Forte or the Medium sets that has some comments on them?

    The Dolce sound interesting but they might be too floppy for me.

    Hi.
    The Forte can feel quite stiff under the left hand.
    All Jargar strings are loaded with a synthetic stuff to dampen/darken the tone, and this stuff is also stiffening the string.
    You may want to choose the medium set for these reasons.

    Yeah, I figured The Jargar Medium would be appropriate, The dark tone is definately appealing to me. I like the LaFaro tone.
