I like the Obligatos very much because I have to play a variety of styles and don't want a lot of tension in my strings. If you've used strictly arco-type strings, they may be a little brighter than you're used to, and conversely, if you've used Spirocore-ish strings for jazz, they will be a little darker with less sustain. They're kind of a trade-off, but work extremely well for my tastes and bow very well for what may be the best hybrid string out there. On every bass that I've tried there wasn't one that didn't sound and feel better(for me) after putting these strings on.
