Hello all. The strings on the upright I own are pretty high-tension, at least I think. I have no idea what brand they are, as they came on the bass. They are pretty good, but sometimes they are a little scratchy when played arco, which is what I mostly play. I recently went on a tour with the music department from my high school to Australia, and I didn't have the resources to take my bass overseas, so I borrowed a few over there. The first one I played was my favorite, and it was because the strings on it felt great. They felt lighter, easier to press down (not because of string height, which was the same as mine), and sounded a lot more like a cello, which is the sound I love. Anyways, I'm looking for a set of relatively light strings. The sound I'm looking for is that darkish sound that cellists get. Any ideas?
