I switched my upright from gut strings to steel wrapped nylon to get a more traditional jazz sound and get used to steel under my fingers. I've been doing more recording projects with my NSD WAV with steel strings... and now I have the little bass that can cover everything from electric to upright, I can strap it on or put it on a stand. The sound is everything I want.
