    Does anyone have any experience with these in solo tuning for arco?

    I only tested out the A/G - I found it warm and pleasant but sort of underwhelming (which is how I found the orchestral medium set). However, Chris Hanulik - principal of the LA Phil - swears by them.

    It is a bit late, but I made a short clip with passion solos. Hope it helps!

  5. Nice tone!
    Is this at solo pitch or orchestra?

    This is solo pitch. The feel is really nice and easy to the hands. I had Mittels on this bass for years and played it in jazzbands. Never really happy. Then I had an orchestral audition (in solo tuning)and put Kaplan on. They were incredibly slow and dead. I had no time to experiment, so I put Spiro solo on. At the audition, almost everybody had passione! Wanted that sound!
    I had a one night stand with flexocore solos, but they come nowhere near the passione sound- and feelwise.
