    I'm Olivier French Double Bassist, i've got a set absolutely new (one week on my basse) of Presto Balance Hybrid strings,
    you can read some knews here :
    http://www.presto-strings.com/reviews.html#rev_balb

    The strings sound loud and dark as Ev Pirazzi strings but with the feeling touch of spirocore and more sustain as EP.
    They bow very well without the "scratchy" sound.
    But i prefer play with a "brillant" strings set on my bass, it's natural darker bass..
    I sell the set or trade for Spiro Weich.
    100 US $ ship included

    Are these the orchestra strings (I think they're called Eurosonics here)? Thanks

    Yes they are Orchestra strings, but they're not the Eurosonic.
    It's very similar in shape of spiro (it's a spiral core too), but with an another type of sound, more than "gut" or Hybrid like Ep for the "Doum", but with more sustain.

    Have you tried these before Francois? I have been using weichs for a while, but am wanting a darker string, that bows nicer, that is maybe easier on the hands.
     
  8. Yes, I have a set here.
    I'm no expert with a bow, but they're definitely darker than weichs.
    As for tension, there's not much difference though.
