I just got a BSX Allegro 5 string. I love the way it feels, but it just has so much "zing" - I don't know how else to put it. I'm trying to get a darker sound on it, and while I've managed to EQ some of the mid-rangey-ness out, I think different strings will help. It came with Helicore Hybrids which definitely won't work. I've also tried various G strings that I have lying around, including EP Weich, EP Solo, Bel Canto Solo. Out of those the BC worked best but didn't have enough pizz attack. I'm hoping to get some recommendations for strings to help with this. I'm thinking something dark and warm, somewhat low tension, less sustain and must be bowable. I'll be playing a lot of Latin stuff on this bass, but also will be messing around with looping so I want some flexibility in terms of tone. Some ideas I had are: Velvet (Animas, Compas, Classico, maybe Blue) Obligatos (just on D and G - I used these a while back and couldn't stand the bottom strings) Innovation 140B or 140H Any thoughts on these and others would be much appreciated! Also, if it matters I'm thinking of switching to High C (instead of low B).
