Viola Weich Spirocore Tungsten C compared to Mittel
I just put on a Mittel Spirocore C on my 15.5" 1926 EHRoth. I was playing a Kaplan AMO tungsten C, which has a softer feel under the finger, but is less articulate. I'm considering trying the weich Sp C for a softer feel like I get on the weich C string on my contrabass.
Has anyone played the mittel and weich that can share an opinion.
Another difference between mittel and weich on bass is increased playability up around the octave on the C without the chronic choking tone common to many strings up there. Whether on viola or bass, sometimes I just want sul C or to just stay up in those positions instead of shifting back down for a couple of notes.
