    If you a have link- please send it over. I searched to no avail.
    I am going to buy my first set of DB strings-Thomastik spirocores and the sight lists the exact same guage but one is Mittel and one is Weich-I have no clue. I will be playing Jazz.
    Thank you.
  2. Mittel is the german word for medium.
    Weich means light, soft.
    The Weichs are slightly lower tension than the regular Mittels.
    Many jazz players choose the Weichs.
