    Any ideas for a set with string diameters G~0.90 D~0.90 A~0.95 E~110(like the Garbo set) BUT of a little higher tension than the Garbo set( 25kg per string)?
     
  2. Pirastro Chorda Carlos Henriquez. A great set of gut strings.

    Hmmm...I remember i was considering those before ending up with the Garbos (which,by the way, are great strings ). I recently switched to Evahs but I can't say I like them. Can't go back to thin G strings after playing the Garbo G...I also don't like the tension and the "very focused but simple" way they sound.

    Thanks for the suggestion, maybe I'll go with the chordas (when i get some extra money to spend:bag:
     
  4. Evahs are bland. I've bought enough of them to be comfortable saying that. The Chordas are spendy, but they hold up well over time if you take care of them.

    Maybe innovation ultra blacks. They are thick, dark, soft, but high tension.
     
  6. Innovation Ultra Blacks are nice for pizz. Higher tension but still easy to play.
