    I am currently playing Evah Pirazzi strings, but I am thinking about changing strings, maybe to guts.

    The sound I am looking for is an oldschool, dark sound.

    My bass is an 1961 Eberle fully carved with a ebony fretboard from eastern Germany.

    I play both pizzicato and arco.
    Most gig I play over either an AER Amp One or a Aguilar AG500SC with a Barefaced Compact cab (1x15). The pickup I use is an Ehrlund contact mic with an Ehrlund Preamp.

    The style I am playing is folk/rock/americana and bebob jazz.

    The strings I am considering to but is following:

    Velvet Garbo G gut (gut G, light D and normal garbo A and E)
    Velvet Blue
    Lenzner 1310B (pure gut G and D. Wound A and E)
    Clefs (pure gut)

    Unfortunately I am not a millionaire so the price is important to.

    Hope so of you can help me by giving me some advise
