    My Solano bass is in the shop and I have a loaner with these strings - green w/ black stripes.
    Anyone know what they are?

    BTW - if anyone is looking for an instrument insurance provider, I highly recommend Clarion Insurance.

    Thanks!

    Those are Evah Pirazzi bass strings by Pirastro. Great Hybrid strings. If you look at the nut end and see a little bit of pink on the windings (you wont have to look hard) then they are the Weich set. If no pink and just the solid colors (Green, blue, red, brown from E-G) then they're mediums

    Thank you for the quick reply! They do have the pink winding. They're a little stiff for my taste but part of that is definitely this bass. They do have a nice, resonant pizz sound.

    Yeah they would be Evah Weich. They feel loose and nice on my bass but maybe yours needs a setup

    They're just on a loaner bass I have while mine is in the shop. I'm definitely impressed with their pizz sound.

    I'd highly suggest trying them on your main bass.

    I'm intrigued. I've tried a lot of string and I've settled on Pirastro Flat Chromesteels or Obligatos.. Usually use the Chromesteels.

    Best hybrid strings IMO. I realized this today. This past week I've been able to (without any issues) play a trad jazz gig (some slap style), Basie big band style swing, contemporary jazz (like Ron carter stuff) and "classical" (eccles sonata and wind ensemble music). No complaints. Just got a gut D/G in the mail but might wait till the summer to put them on.
