All right, time to change from synthetic to real gut strings! I'm going to buy plain G+D... but what about A+E?! I play mostly country, folk, old time jazz, and so on... pizz and slap too. I've listened musicians that plays the same kind of music like Beau Sample (Eudoxa A+E) or Jimmy Sutton (Oliv A+E). Both superb players with their own techniques. But which strings would be the best for me? The Pirastro company says that Eudoxa are brighter and with more sustain than Oliv... and I'd like to hear each note well defined when pizz but I don't want an excess of sharpy slap sound... Anyone with experience in that situation?
