don't believe a word of this...the spirocore lights are too light, they have no sound. They also respond horribly to the bow, and the fishman is the worst sounding pickup you can get. And never glue anything to your bridge. For strings try the correlli TX rope cores if you need bow, or Pirastro Obligatos for a warm gutty sound. The david gage "realist" pickup is the only pickup worth using

: : : Hello all,


: : : I am wanting to buy some Thomastik Spirocore strings for my bass. I have an Engelhardt S-9. The thing I want to know is what guage to buy. I play bluegrass and was looking at Lemur Music's website at Mike Bub's recomendation. They appear to have three guages and was wondering what the differences in sound would be and what would be the best guage to get. Thanks in advance because all advice is appreciated.

: : WELL TONY THE BEST STRING IS THE THOMASTIK SPIROCORE REGUARS NOT THE WEICH.THERE TO LITE PLUS THERE GREAT WITH THE BOW.PLUS IF YOU GET A PICKUP GET A FISHMAN AND GLUE THE DISK'S TO THE BRIDGE IT GIVES A GREAT SOUND AND A GIG PRO PRE AMP IS GREAT TOO WRITE BACK .
