My girlfriend plays cello and she has these beautiful warm and full sounding strings : D`addario Pro Arte strings. They have such a warm and full tone on her cello both arco and pizz I always was a little jealous of her that they werent available for the Bass. That was until about5 minutes ago when I found out that d`addario did actually make them for the Double Bass but discontinued them in `99. Does anybody have a clue as to why they stopped making them, and does someone have experience with them ? Where they really so warm and beautiful sounding on a bass as I imagine or is my girlfriend just lucky that they sounds so good on her cello ?
