Michele C. Posted January 24, 2013 Share Posted January 24, 2013 I changed strings tonight replacing a set of Thomastick Infeld that must date back to september with a new one. I actually changed them just to be safe, since I expect to be doing a recording in a couple of weeks, but I was not dissatisfied with the sound. The new strings have that gorgeous richness that new strings have, overtone lush and all the rest. But the old strings sounded good even compared to the new set. During the process I retuned on every string change and played a little bit. There is definitely a lack of highs in my old strings, but the mids and the lows are still right, with enough growl to be noticed by the conductor at last rehearsal. Being satisfied by the sound of string months old has not happened to me before, interesting. -- Michele Costabile (http://proxybar.net) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
