: Hi all,
: I'm preparing to buy new strings and not sure which
: spirocore's set I should get. There's superflex, weich and
: orchestral, I play jazz, lots of pizzacato and little bow.
: Any suggestions is grateful.. thanks

Weich is the lightest, Orchestra is the medium weight in Spirocores. Superflex is another string type, a cheaper string than the Spirocores.

Be advises that Spirocores are not the bow-friendliest strings; they have a tendency to be harsh and scratchy, and most good pickup systems will amplify that well . They are a great pizz string, of course, and your choice should be based on your personal preference for a more or less taut string. I have no experience with Superflex. Quinn Violins says in his description, "Superflexible are a smoother sounding steel, rope core string as compared to Spirocore."
