: Andreas, I have had no problems with volume, but I suppose it depends on the bass ind it's setup. The Obligatos have proven themselves to me in evey setting from duo to 20 piece big band.

I have been sticking with the following set for the past months and I am very happy with it:

G string: Obligato
D and A strings: Spirocore Weich
E string: Spirocore Orchestral (for that extra growl)

Whenever I need **that** particular vibe, I will trade my Obligato G for a plain gut string (La Bella or Velvet)...but as much as I love that gut sound, the Obligato will quickly find its way on my bass again...I always say to myself that Ray Brown, Al McKibbon and Milt Hinton must have switched to steel strings for a valid reason!


P.S. Hi Dave!
when can I hear you play in Boston in the next future?
