    Have any jazz players tried Pirastro Passione strings? Wondering if I should give them a shot.

    They are classical arco strings as presented. Too dark, stiff and lifeless for jazz pizz, IMO.
  3. The top strings are okay for jazz pizz, but the bottom ones much less.

    I found them way too much hard work and wouldn't consider using them as a jazz string. I would go for Evah Weichs.
