Just perfect
Eleazar R., 27.07.2016
I have always been a big fun of gut strings.
But unless I'm doing a gig with a proper PA system, is quite difficult for me to be heard just through my amp.
And I've try many of them and combination with pick ups.
So I've finally tried the Oliv
And they blew my mind. The sound is just perfect. Dark but punchy, much easier for bowing (in my case french), and still get that gut sound in records I've always listened and love.
Is as versatil as you think; just perfect for pizzicato, bow or slap.
Don't worry about the tuning, because after a week is settle (if the place where you playing is too hot or you're in an open space you'll need your tuner, but that is with any strings).
Absolutely highly recomended

j'adore
David6643, 13.04.2017
tout est dans le titre.
j'ai une contrebasse massive chinoise, montée en synthétique sur E et A et donc avec les oliv en D et G, j'adore, beaucoup plus de matière dans le son, ça a réveillé ma contre et lui donnent des airs de veilles dame, toutes proportions gardées.
le plus beau G entendu à ce jour, et le D est très chouette aussi.
les cordes reviennent vite en place, sont sensibles à tout type d'attaque. fonctionnent super à l'archet aussi.
le tirant me convient parfaitement, elles sont assez épaisses, mais pas du tout fatiguantes
c'est pas brillant, plutôt sombre.

à mon sens elles s'adaptent à n'importe quel style, jazz old school, manouche, moderne, chanson (je ne joue pas de rockab)

Darm! Nur Darm klingt wie Darm!
Christoph385, 12.09.2012
Pirastro ist ohnehin meine Wahl seit über zwei Jahrzehnten. Der Katalog bietet ein zwar unübersichtliches, dafür aber sehr reichhaltiges Saitenangebot für alle Lebenslagen. Mein Haupterwerbsholz wird in erster Linie für Theater / Musical / Schauspiel eingesetzt, also irgendwo zwischen leichtem Jazz mit viel Pizzicato über Dreigroschenopern bis zu Operetten mit viel Arco. Da brauchst du eine Saite, die gezupft ordentlich Wumms hat und sich dennoch tadellos streichen lässt, dabei aber zugleich handschmeichlerich genug ist, um auch lange Probenphasen ohne Beschwerden durchzustehen. Oliv ist da nach meiner Erfahrung absolut top, relativ stimmstabil für Darmverhältnisse und sowohl klanglich als auch haptisch eine Offenbarung! Jedoch mit Einschränkungen: ich benutze G und D Oliv, die A- und E-Saite gefallen mir nicht so gut, sie klingen vor allem im Pizzicato sehr undifferenziert. Ich kombiniere G/D-Oliv mit Obligato A/E, das passt von den Stärken her sehr gut und hat den Vorteil, dass man mit den beiden tiefen Kunststoffsaiten immer zwei Saiten hat, die sich nicht verstimmen, falls man zwischendurch mal die Därme nachspannen muss und einen Referenzton braucht.

Dem Darm-Neuling gebe ich zu bedenken, unbedingt die Saitenauflagen an Steg und Sattel deutlich zu vergrößern, sonst reisst der Darm schneller, als man neue Saiten aufziehen kann. Danach ist Wohlfühlen angesagt!!

Top!
Philipp M. 700, 15.08.2014
Bin sehr zufrieden!
- voller Sound
- fühlt sich toll am Finger an
- gestrichen super Ansprache und schöne Höhen
- gezupft toller Attack ("Darm-Kick")

Meine Mensur von 109 cm begünstigt wohl Darmsaiten.

Die Saite hat erst nach ca. 1 Monat die Stimmung gehalten, aber das war für mich kein Problem.
