: I'm thinking of trying the Corelli 370TX strings on my bass. I have heard that they do not last very long and must be replaced after 6 months or so. Right now I'm using 4 month old Pirastro Obligatos that sound great with the bow but recently went pretty dead for pizz. How long have your Corellis lasted?
In my opinion you cannot have both! - I like the Obligato strings and I bow
alot - I haven't thought about pizz. If I played jazz I would try the
D'Addario pizz Helicore and not expect them to bow or at least sound terrible.
Maybe you need two basses! Change strings for each style?
Maybe some one else has an idea - New strings always sound great - if you
play alot maybe that is the life of your Corellis - Good Luck
and play as much as possible.
