Spirocores on the bottom + various "top" strings -- It's such a popular combination. I had made a sound clip for another thread (Pirastro Flat-chromesteel) but rather than hijack that thread, I'd thought it might be useful to start a thread to discuss what top strings folks have found to mix well with Spirocores (of whatever gauge) on the bottom. Sound clips are helpful and encouraged! Here's two: Spirocore + Flex Deluxe: Spirocore + Obligatos Both the FDs and Obligatos had been on the bass for about 5 days. I don't know how old the Spirocores on the bottom are but they are well broken in (but not old/dead). Rec. w/ Ear Trumpet Labs Edwina mic -> Neve preamp plugin -> Logic. EQ flat, no processing.
