Hey all... After living with the Obligatos for about 9 months, I am at a bit of a crossroads. I love their sound, I love the feel, and they're very even across the board in terms of volume and projection. However, I'm wanting something even darker and more focused as far as tonal quality is concerned. I'm thinking about going with the new Kolstein Heritage strings, but the description still doesn't really answer my question as to how they may sound. They say they offer a gut feel, but the tonal characteristic of a metal orchestra/jazz string. I have a feeling they may still be too bright for me. My ear is telling me that I'm close to what's in my head, but not quite yet. The La Bella Golden Tone set is pretty appealing in terms of what it may offer, but I have a feeling it may be too far in the other direction for me... I play mostly pizz in modern/traditional jazz settings, and arco occasionally. Volume isn't a problem with Obligatos, so I'm not wanting to sacrifice that. The bass I have (Kohr K64 carved top) is pretty dark to start with, considering it's only maybe a year and a half old. Am I looking for something in a non-gut string that I just can't really have? I feel as though I'm rambling, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
