I have been using helicore orchestral strings for a while and I like the way they sound. my only problem with them is how "tense" they feel. the e string is the worst for this. Im looking for the same sound, that darker but not muddy sound, but just in something that is not so hard on the hands. also, my bowing isn't the greatest but at this point I don't think that it is me anymore. the low strings seem really hard to get going. I have been thinking about corelli's based on what I have read but i'm not sure how they would feel, all I have seen is really on there sound. thanks for any help.
