For years I use these strings with my orchestra bass, tried another brands and another names but Pirastro Flat Chromesteel are the best for me. Clear and powerful sound through registers, very good response.

Sehr gute Stahlsaite für nahezu alle Anlässe
Christoph385, 19.12.2011
Flat Chromesteel benutze ich auf dem Kontrabass seit fast 20 Jahren. Ich spiele in erster Linie Theatermusik im Bereich Schauspiel / Musical / Operette, ein typischer Mix aus gezupften / jazzigen Passagen und immer wieder gestrichenem Einsatz. Dabei muss die Saite einerseits sehr stimmstabil sein, andererseits über eine gute Bogenansprache verfügen und sie darf gezupft nicht zu dumpf klingen. Auf meinem ohnehin etwas höhenlastigen Flachbodenbass erfülllt Flat Chromesteel diese Anforderungen ganz hervorragend, die Bogeneigenschaften sind ohnehin sehr gut, der Pizzicato - Sound hat genügend Sustain, ohne zu harsch zu klingen. Je nach Belastung spiele ich einen solchen Satz mindestens eine Saison lang, sie halten ihren Klang sehr lange. Anders als viele andere Stahlsaiten sind die Flat Chromesteel relativ weich und eignen sich sehr gut für Bassisten, die nicht unbedingt mit Gewalt spielen möchten. Noch ein Hinweis für Jazzer: diese Saiten klingen auch mit einem Stegpickup sehr gut, da man das typische, von einem Piezo stets überproportional wiedergegebene "Geklirre" der angesagten Jazzsaiten erst garnicht wegfiltern muss!!

Alles in allem eine sehr gute Hybridsaite, obwohl sie als solche garnicht beworben wird. Wem Obligatos zu schlabbrig, Därme zu teuer und die Konkurrenzprodukte aus Wien mit der roten Schleife zu stacheldrahtig sind, sollte diesem Satz mal ein Ohr leihen.

un choix fidèle
VéroniqueG, 21.12.2013
Cela fait des années que je joue ces cordes , chaque fois que j'en essaie d'autres j'y reviens. Elles ont un bon répondant à l'archet, des harmoniques superbes et mettent en valeur le timbre de mon instrument.

Tolle Jazz/Pizzicatosaiten
upright, 26.08.2012
Die Saiten klingen sehr ausgewogen und sind angenehm zu spielen. Ich verwende sie hauptsächlich pizzicato - mag prinzipiell eher weiche Saiten - bin deshalb sehr zufrieden. Habe vorher jahrelang Pirastro Obligato gespielt, bin aber jetzt zufriedener mit dem ausgewogenerem Klangbild, vor allem die Mitten bzw. der nasale Klang beim Verstärken fällt bei den Flat Chromsteel weg.
