How about the most expensive of them all, the Knobloch Actives CX Carbon Pure Sterling Silver MT 500KAS?

At nearly $60.00, I think this would be one set I wouldn't even try. God help me if I liked them. I'd have to buy them again. And if I hated them, we'll there's 60 bucks down the toilet. Thank God I don't like gut...that would be a hundred bucks in the Pyramid.

I’m sold on Hauser strings. Does anyone know who makes them for the Hauser’s?

I think that this is why I don't care for D'Addarios... the stigma of low cost.

I don't like d'addario strings simply because of the sound from them. I love Savarez Cantiga basses, but I'm still searching for a really nice treble string to go with them.

The Savarez alliance feel great, but I'm not thrilled the sound of the 1st string.

Next in my trial are the RC Recital trebles & Mari P light tension, and the Diamonte Dugal's.

I tried Optima No.6 Silver Strings Carbon High on a Tama TC-15 cedar (formerly equipped with Saverez nylon and carbon) and on a Krempel spruce (that was strung with Knobloch when I bought it). For me the Optima are better on both instruments than the strings I used before. But I will try other sets, I just started with a test.

I think you will like the Dogal Diamanté trebles with the Cantiga basses. I keep coming back to them.
