so I bought a new bass (I mean REALLY new Christopher Hybrid) and I took the obligatos off the one I had to put on my new prized possesion. Things were great at first, truly sonorous, but I think they were serious with the written warning aboiut detensioning the obligatos. It was thud thud city after a week, so back to the d'dario hybrids that came with it. however, I am not enamoured with the arco tone of the hybrids. They are fine piz, but just a bit too scratchy bowed. And I truly am 50/50 on the bow/pizz. I am in NYC for a few months, so I would be crazy not to take the bass to Gage's for a "hop-up" job (it came from a reputable luthier, it's just not TOTALLY tuned). Other than that, what strings might would be the logical next experiment? I'm kinda looking at the superflexibles, and spirocores. whatcha think?
