I am currently playing a 16' Samuel Shen viola. It is a naturally bright instrument. It isn't overly bright, but the right strings can tip it over. I currently have Vision Solos with a Larsen A. It's a great set, by it's tipping the scale of brightness. It has great volume and I'm in love with the A.
I am currently wanting to try out a darker string that wouldn't mute the sound of my viola too much. I was thinking Obligatos with a Larsen A, but I'm not sure if its a good match. Suggestions? I open to other strings as well.
