: I'd like to ask some experienced jazz players, if using strings with less
: tension makes a big difference in speed when playing jazz solos, in both pizz.

: Still refering to string tension, are there any advantages over one or the
: other?

: Do gut strings have considerably less tension, than a low tension, (other core,)
: string?

: (Thanks.)

I personaly like high tension strings for Pizz, and specially when I am soloing and playing fast passages they seem to respond faster, I use the Helicores heavy gauge hibrids, it works for me. Eduardo.
