Shannon Wade says:

"The Garbo is the largest portion of the instrument which defines my sound.  Prescott to plywood, these strings offer big, full and booming sound, unbelievable volume and projection, while with just a slight change of technique, giving sustain and clarity of pitch that any other gut string can only daydream of.  Even with a bow, I prefer Garbo's deep and complex voice to steel any day, hands down. Thanks Velvet!"
