    Hey so heres the specifics, I play an approx. 15-20 year old Romanian Carved baby. Huge sound, very broad. nice attack, the whole deal.

    I've had Pirastro Obligatos on it for the past year or so, but lately, with the bass changing, they are just too bright. They also don't really lend a hand with the whole broad sound( in fact they not only accentuate it, but make it almost out of control)

    I generally play mostly Pizz these days with some arco in performance (more in the shed) in and out of jazz, rock, folk, etc Anyone have any suggestions for a set that is a little rounder and more focused?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!
