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

I just love it
David6643, 13.04.2017
everything is in the title.
I have a massive Chinese double bass, mounted on synthetic E and A and so with oliv D and G, I love, much more material in the sound, it has awakened my cons and give him the airs of old lady , all the kept proportions.
the most beautiful G heard so far, and the D is very nice too.
the ropes come back quickly, are sensitive to any type of attack. work great at the bow too.
the pulling suits me perfectly, they are quite thick, but not at all tiring
it's not brilliant, rather dark.

in my opinion they adapt to any style, old school jazz, gypsy, modern, song (I do not play rockab)
