I took my 5/8 size bass to my teacher last night,and he pointed out that the top is not well reinforced around the bridge area. He doubted that the bass could handle the stress of a medium guage set of strings(I have order Pirastro Obbligato from Lemur,but have not received them yet-I will call them to stop shippment). Can anyone recommend a light set of strings that are good for pizz and arco. At this point,I am not concerned about loudness,projection,etc-I am consigning this bass to practice only.
