: : 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?
Thanks for the info. I've been using Helicore pizzicato and am not unhappy with them. I am looking for more "wood" and less "metal" in my sound. I haven't tried the Permanents. Any idea on the approximate lifespan of the Dominants?
