Should I pick Kaplan Amo or Kaplan Vivo? Can I Mix?
Does anyone have experience with mixing Kaplan Amo/Vivo?
I know you can mix strings for say, infeld red/blue...
I need to play over an orchestra in April, performing Mozart No.4 in D: Not sure if I should just get vivo or just get amo
You've now said "No. 4 in G" and "No. 3 in D". Neither of these are correct. It's 3 in G, and 4 in D. Are you doing 3 or 4?
Can your violin project with its current setup?
Why Kaplans at all? They feel rough, like guitar strings. For about the same price you could install Dominates and know what to expect.
yes, I'm opinionated about strings.
Amp and Vivo are different enough that I’d be surprised if they mixed well, but maybe you have a weird violin :-) I know some players that mix Vivo and Zyex though.
I second Jeff's opinion.
Rocky: you mean you third it. I beat you to the 2nd :-)
My violin is a wilkanowski, darker and a little muddy on the GDA with evah gold.
Be aware that focus (the "clean" sound), which can make a violin seem superficially louder under the ear, often equates to less projection, not more.
