Product Reviews for Pirastro Bass Obligato Set, Orchestra, 441020

Pirastro Bass Obligato Set, Orchestra, 4410205brad benefieldSeptember 2, 2011I should warn you that a) I play a pretty cheap upright bass, and b) I only change my strings every 3 years or so. I used to have a DeArmond magnetic pickup on my bass, and for several years only used strings with a high steel content. When I got rid of the DeArmond, I wanted to try something warmer for bowing and pizzicato. So far the Obligatos are great - less tension that what I was used to, so the feel is easier on my fingers. They also have a bright definition (probably because I'm used to dead 3-year old strings) but are warm and dark also. They seem to get more of a "swell" from the bass and more of the wood tone. It hurts to drop $180 on strings, but for me it was a big improvement in tone and playability.
