Pirastro Obligatos are good. They're easier to bow and have a good pizz sound. They don't have the sustain of spirocores but they sound good. I have heard good things about Corelli 370's also. Can anyone comment on the differences in the pizz sound between Obligatos & Corellis?

: still have good sustain for pizz. Are there any good hybrid strings out there that fit this description or should I buy a set for each style?
