I have honestly been through about 20 different strings in the last 3 years. So far the Solo Obligatos tuned down have been the best comprimise. I keep comming back to them. I recently tried the Supersensitive Sensicore and they seemed to be more floppy than the solo obligatos tuned down. My second favorite string so far has been the Eurosonic Ultra Light strings. They were to hard to bow though even after scraping them up with sand paper in the bowed area. It would be nice to find something perfect, but the solo obligatos will have to do untill then. On my bass, most strings seem very tight.
