    These have been carefully fitted and removed from my bass with about 2 months use, as part of my string experiments:

    Corelli 370F
    Pirastro Obligatos
    Pirastro Flat-Chromes

    $50 each set shipped to the lower 48.

    There should be plenty of life left in these strings - hopefully I can recoup a little of the cost of trying them, and someone will be able to audition them for substantially less than buying them new.

    PM Sent back - hope you got it; TB was acting a little strangely when I was trying to post.

    Obligatos have gone to hdiddy. Corellis on hold for Peredur: Flatchromes still available.

    How are the flat chromes for jazz?

    I'm using Spirocore Weich's right now.

    Thanks.

    I used them exclusively for Jazz: they are about the same thickness as Weichs, but slightly higher tension (very flexible though). They have a clean, clear sound, and were quite loud on my bass, probably due to the increased tension. They also bow extremely well (for a hybrid string).

    Sorry, they went.

    I still have the Corellis, I'm supposed to be holding them for someone, but they haven't got back to me, so I suppose they should go back up as available.

    I'm interested in the Corellis if they're still available.

    Sorry, all the sets are already sold,

    thanks for asking, though.

    Best,
