I've recently gotten a gig in an Afro-Cuban band, & I'm looking for a new string with an old sound. I'm currently using Obligatos, but would like to try something with a little darker, thumpier sound, & something that might a little easier on the hands during a long set. I'm not sure I have the time & money to get an adjustment for the nut & bridge, so thin is good. Francois recommended Jargar Dolces which I plan to try very soon, but any other opinions would be helpful. Thanks again TB-ers for all of the info.
