Not a very unique thread, but... At the moment I use a set Pirastro Obliogato, and I like them alot in both pizz and arco. Though I think they (especially the D- and G-strings) are kind of weak and shy. Skinny... (Understand what I mean?) This I find more on my bass than on other Obligato fitted basses I´ve played... My bass is 105cm with "medium" string height. I play mostly "nordic/ECM style jazz", though I care alot for my walking and bowing as well. I now consider buying either a set, a mix or perhaps just D- and G-strings of Pirastro Eudoxa (or maybe Olive?) or Velvet 180 or 360 (or something else?). But I really cant make up my mind, or be sure of the differences. (B.t.w. steel strings are, at the monent, out of the question.) And as I play unamplified as often as possible, an increase in volume/attack would be a plus. Any thoughts or tips? Thank you in advace.
