I might try a set of pyramid. I played an aquantence's Hauser I that had pure silver basses. They had a very distinct sound, but not as deep as I would have liked. I don't know what brand they were. They may have been new as I noticed no wear on the windings.
Are the Pyramid sterling silver or Knobloch double silver merely plated, or are the windings actually silver?
From my experience the Sterling silver strings don't show a great deal of fret wear or corrosion and seem to last a lot longer than other strings.
The strings you mention hearing could have been La Bella Argento. They are very pure and refined but lack power and weight in my view. Of course, you can't ascribe the sound you heard to the strings as it could very well have been the guitar instead or as well.
The Silver and Sterling Silver tags refer to the plating material not the core metal of the wire or the former material.
Are they copper wound, or Bronze? I was going to try an Argento, but now I wont. And you are absolutely right about the fact it could have been the guitar. My Ramirez 4NE sounded miles better. That Hauser didn't project well. What set pyramid sterling silver would have tension similar to medium tension Ramirez strings?
