Had to chime in on this one although string guru's recommendations are good enough..
Can pair savarez cantinga basses (Really very nice) with...
1] Savarez Cristal Rouge...very very bright,not thin sounding at all
2] Augustine Regal...great sound but the trebles are temperature sensitive (not tried Imperials as yet)
3] Marie 100p & 200p (good strings and very reasonable trebles but not my favourite)
