I've used the spiracores for years, and I have tried the hybrids, but I prefer the D'addario Pizzicatos. I think they keep their sustain longer in the lower register, and they seem easier to bow. The G and D strings are a little brighter, but they mellow after a few months. I've had my current strings on for at least a year, and they still sound good. I remember having trouble bowing the hybrid E string. It seemed really thick to me. Maybe the pizz's are bowing easy because their so old. There are lots of variables, so I hope this helps.

: I have been playing jazz for the past few years and have used Tomastik Spirocore Orchestra exclusively on a carved bass. I play mainly pizz but would like to bow a little more often. I would also just like to try something a little different without changing things too much. I was wondering how D'Addario Hybrids would change the sound and feel of the instument? Also would bowing improve? I will still be playing mainly jazz pizz so how will these strings perform under those conditions? I have been using a Fishman pickup and have recently purchased a Realist (not yet installed). Any info would be appreciate. thanks, wayne
