: Would some one please explain:
: What's the difference in sound etc. if I use a bow on arco (vs.) pizz strings?
: What's the difference in sound if I play pizz on arco (vs.) pizz strings?
Strings specifically designed for pizz. generally have less dampening material between the core and outside layers, and possibly a different core material so they will produce more sustain. Orchestral strings are designed for less (normal?) sustain and a better arco response. A lot goes to player preference, too.
