: 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?

I currently have Corelli 370TX on my carved Bass. And have been using them almost daily for over 7 months. I use both bow and pizz, and got the Corelli's for that purpose. I am very pleased with the strings. They are a little brighter than D'Addarios (Orchestra Medium) but also sustain a little more and are very easy on the instrument because of their lower tension. Except for a little loss in brightness,they have held up pretty well in 7 months, and I am very hard on strings. Hope this helps.
