We've long had the white Eurosonic strings, which are a favorite for pizzicato styles where a durable string with a gut-like vibe was needed. This black tapewound variant has a smaller diameter (the white tape strings are known to be a bit on the chubby side), with a dark sound and nice punchy tone. Currently available only in full sets, "light" gauge only.
This "laydown" style stand is highly portable and lightweight, yet very sturdy and sure-footed. Very easy to use and set up, it even comes with a multi-compartment zippered carry bag. Very small footprint on stage. Cool!

There are some specific stringing techniques that they recommend using, to provide the best tuning stability – as well as prevent damage to the tuning keys of your new instrument.
