: IMHO Corelli 370TX fit the bill. They bow very smoothly, not scratchy like the Spiros, and have nice sustain. A little bright when you first put them on, but they calm down nicely after a week or so.

: I have to strongly agree with Bob G. The Corellis 370TX are excellent for both bowing and pizz.
They have a good sustain and a decent volume. And very good with instruments with thin tops like
mine.(Less tension).
