Is there a set of Steels that are very low tension?
Corelli's are very low. Spiro Weichs are a nice tension (not as low as Corelli's) and sound great.
Your profile doesn't mention double-bass.
Didn't you post on the wrong side of the forum?...
No I own and play both. Right forum
I've heard of some folks playing solo Superflexibles or Spiros tuned down to orchestra pitch. That said, I found Spiro Weichs to be fairly low tension. The Corellis someone else mentioned are low in tension ... I used them on an EUB once upon a time. And, I think some of the Jargar steels are pretty low tension, but I've never played them.
animas though copper (I think) not steel are low tention metal strings
They're copper windings over a synthetic core. I think the OP is looking for all-steel ... although I may be wrong?
One more for your list....
Helcore Pizz Medium is similar in tension (low) to the Spirocore Weichs and Corelli TX 380's but doesn't have as much twang as the Weich. Very easy to play too.
However that does not mean that the Helicore will sound good on YOUR bass. You'll have to experiment with a single string to find out how they sound.
