I just put a set of Obligato's on my carved top plywood this week and they are fantastic!!I had a set of Helicore Hybrids on for two years and the Obligatos blow them away.I'm mostly a jazz bassist and these strings bow better or easier than anything I've tried[I also run a bass shop] They have a wonderfull growl without being metalic and the tension is closer to metal[spiro's,etc] than a typical gut string.As for how long they will last I guess time will tell but at $98.00 US from SW Strings not a bad investment.Anyone out there with any comments on Obligatos longevity? Good luck on your search for the perfect string.
