: For general orchestra use, Pirastro Oliv strings are not only expensive, but the difference in feel of a wound gut string will require changing your bow's point-of-contact even closer to the bridge. An intermediary step to the most expensive set of strings that money can buy might be Pirastro Eudoxa Gut strings (available from Lemur for about $50 less than Oliv), or even Thomastik Dominant (perlon core) at around $120 for the complete set. Experiencing the difference between playing on steel or gut (or perlon) core strings with a bow doesn't have to cost soooo much.
: try the Pirastro Obligato with the Perlon Core. I think you will find what you are looking for in terms of good pizz sound, and arco sound too.
