Probably the most used string for Jazz pizzicato along with the Spirocore light.

Nothing beats Spiro's for pizz.

My bass sounds great with full strength Spiro's.  But they're hard on the hands and don't bow well. So I'm forced to use hybrids unless there's only jazz coming up.

Quite interested in these as I tried some normal Evah's and found them a better bow & pluck compromise than my helicore hybrids.  but How much softer are the "weichs"?

Full scale length?

 Hi man, the scale says for 3/4 - 4/4, seems there is only one size! As for tension I haven’t played the regulars but there is quite a bit of info on  Talkbass  regarding the comparison, seems that some find the regular gauge a bit tiring? Cheers, Jez

Tension comparison (pounds) which shows Evah Weichs are  slightly lower tension than Spiro Weichs ... which in turn are about 10% lower tension than Spiro mediums

Pirastro only makes 4/4 strings, so they fit on any scale lenght pretty much. Helicore hybrids come in three gauges, Evah weich are like Helicore hybrid light. I think they sound way better than Helicore, richer and fuller tone. For bowing the Evah mittel are better though.

Evah's, Agreed, certainly better than helicores.  My set of those pre date this modern obsession with tension and are just "helicore hybrids"; likewise my even older spirocores are simply that.

.. is useful info.  My bass ( aka the Big German Bass or BGB  ) has a 44" scale.

Oh well.  Dithering again.  Great buy to someone.

That'll be £214 going from me to Bassbags then ... but I'll go full tension I think.
