Yet another "which strings?" thread:
My violin is extremely strong in the upper mids, but somewhat lacking in body. I use it for recording simple lines on pop records (interweaving between vocal lines and such) so I do NOT want the Evah Pirazi / Vision Solo sound! The sound must have character & depth, but not stick out too much.
I am looking for a string that will add fullness, not take away HF. Warm, but not dead. Think chamber music
Since these will be for studio use exclusively, I also require a fairly fast break-in time.
I just installed Vision Orchestras. They do break in bloody fast, and the pitch seems very stabile. However, they aren't quite as warm as I had hoped. I considering Obligatos in light gauge. From what I've reead on many threads, these should have the sound, but do they break-in fast or slow?
What are the negatives to light gauge, vs med?
What is the difference between the silver and aluminum D's?
Any other suggestions for a warm, blending tone that still has complexity?
