    For sale:

    1) One full set of Eurosonic regulars. Bought new from Upton Bass in January 2002, they were installed on my Kay for about 3 months. They're still in good condition. I did nip about 2 inches off the pegbox end of each string so they wouldn't crowd each other.
    $40 shipped to anywhere in the States or Canada; $50 to Europe.

    2) Pirastro Obligatos -- full set, in good condition. Bought new about a year ago. A few hours of playing time on this set, but there's still plenty of life left in 'em!
    $45 shipped to U.S/Canada; $55 Europe

    3) Pirastro Oliv E, A, D -- gut wrapped in chrome steel. The E and A strings are in almost new condition, they were installed on a bass for less than 2 days. The D string is in very good condition, has about 12 hours of playing time.
    E - $75; A - $55; D - $40. $160 for all 3.

    Thanks for looking and feel free to p.m. or email me with any questions. I can accept personal checks, money orders and PayPal.
     
  2. Hey Joe!

    Caught you guys here in Enumclaw, Wa about a year ago - great stuff!

    I'm very interested in your Pirastro Obligatos and possibly the euros as well. I am curious about your experience with them - any comments?

    I like to be able to bow quite a bit (more folksy kinda gospel stuff) so the Pirastro Obligatos sound like they may be ideal for my Strunal. I did get to try Euros on a Swingmaster (at Hammond-Ashley) but not really sure what I thought of them. I was thinking of trying them on my Azola floating Bugbass...

    Thanks

    Hey Doug! Nice to hear from you. Oh yeah, that show was the one where my bad case of bronchitis had just about turned into pneumonia! Boy was I hopped up on Robotussin. Good thing we were in a church, other wise I might have slipped away forever that night!

    We'll be back up your way next week, though not in Enumclaw.
    Thursday 2/10 at Jazzbones, 2803 6th Ave. in Tacoma
    and Sunday 2/13 at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle.

    Sorry, but I just did sell the Obligatos.
    As for the Euros, I can't say that I'd recommend them for your Bug Bass, esp. if you plan on bowing them. I had them on a 1939 Kay and they sounded good, but arco strings they're not.
