"A great all around string, very safe and down the middle, a good beginners string with a bit darker sound. Flexible and dark but not remotely close to gut. In comparison to an all steel string one could argue the Obligato has a "gut like" sound but in reality this is a steel string with a nylon core NOT a substitute for a real gut sound although it may achieve that for some players. This string can growl for jazz, thump for bluegrass, and then be bowed with ease...a very nice attribute."
