: Reed !
: Strings are very expensive and even more so here in Sweden...
: My next buy will be a set of Helicores/light gauge !
Christian, be aware that the same strings won't sound the same on different basses.
Go with the Helicore pizz light only if you want the brightess tone possible.
I'd personnally go with the Heavy gauge to get more body.
I've tried many variants of Helicores (light and medium arcos, medium and heavy hybrids) and definitely didn't liked the light gauges.
I've found the Helicores sounded thinner than Spirocores or Jazzers, and that medium or heavy was the gauge to go!
Just my $0.02
