Hi- I have a brand new set of Velvet Garbo's. the Garbo's are the jazz strings. the difference between these and the animas is that they are much smoother to the feel making them like guts. I bought the Garbo's today to check them out and they aren't for my bass. They are brand spanking new - only on my bass for a couple of hours. I have original packaging. they Set me back $260 so I would like to sell them for: $200 - can ship.
