    Those of you who bow: What are the best strings you have tried? Sets or mixture. Arco being my first choice--pizz secondary.

    Bowing silver slap strings

    I have tried Silver Slaps. Good for pizz & slap---not very good on the bow. I currently have a set of Evah Pirazzi Weich on my bass---a good all round string for pizz / bow / slap. Suit me.

    Playing without an amp

    Tried various stings over the years and the best--for me- for volume & tone are Evah Pirazzi Weich. Good for pizz & arco.

    Playing without an amp

    Rabbie is spot on--Technique & Tone. I read an article by Ray Brown where he said that guys like him were brought up--in the 1940's---in big bands and had to project to be heard. No amps in those days.--hence there tone and volume. He said that the guys today are brought up with amps. A big difference.
  8. Has anybody a set of 'Pirastro Flexocors' or 'D'Addario Kaplan' Lights for 3/4 bass for sale?--GDAE--in good condition and not been cut at peghead. Send me a PM with details if you have . Thanks.
