Obligatos vs. Jazzer?

    How do Obligatos compare to the Jazzers? Mostly interested in pizz.

    I'm real happy with the Jazzers on my "old" carved bass, but thinking of ditching those crazy Eurosonics on my plywood bass.


  2. The Obligatos are more gut-like, have a warmer tone and more thumpy than Jazzers.
    But your plywood may react differently with them.
    It's hard to predict how a bass will respond to a given brand of strings.
    You may want to order just one or two strings (the G and D are the cheapest) and test them for yourself.
