I am considering synthetic core strings for my upright- possibly Pirastro Obligato or Picatos. My main concern is that I have heard that these strings have a very short string life. I have been using Spirocores and Helicores and am looking for something less "metallic" but I still want growl as I play about 75% pizz 25% arco. I have also been considering rope core strings- possibly Corellis. Any comments?
