Thomastik-Infeld Spirocore 3/4 Upright Double Bass String Set - Medium Gauge

Model: 4334276325   |    Mpn: STBASPI28_1NAB   |    PartNumber: STBASPI28_1NAB   |   Asin: B004U4CZ2S

Thomastik-Infeld Spirocore for Upright Double Bass are a flexible spiral steel core string that provide a quick response, consistent performance, with gut-like tonal power. These strings have great sustain and a big sound good for many styles, but remain a jazz favorite. You'll also find them on lots of general use basses, for bluegrass, blues, and other styles where that big sound and sustain are prized. These Bass strings are one of the most popular and versatile sets on the market today. Spirocores are equally suited to arco and pizzicato playing, providing exceptionally strong, rich tonal values throughout the range, and giving a crisp sustained pizzicato sound which also makes them popular with jazz players. The Spirocore is a powerful high tension string. Spirocore strings are a further technical development of Thomasik's Kunstler Seil series and have a flexible spiral steel core. This core has greater elasticity than that of conventional strings, which means less inertia and a higher propensity to musical vibration. The sound is full and homogenous, balanced and voluminous. This is a Thomastik-Infeld Spirocore 3/4 Upright Double Bass Medium Gauge String Set. All stings are Chromesteel Wound Flexible Spiral Steel Core.

This unique design has a super smooth area covering the top section of the fingerboard allowing for fast and pain free switching of notes with virtually no unwanted string noise caused by the friction of sliding your fingers. The bottom area of the strings have a light to medium-soft texture that has been "spiral cut" into the string. This texture facilitates better gripping of the strings for lightning fast pizzicato playing, and drag triplets with with almost no effort. The strings "grab" the air and force it to move, producing more mid and low end tone when playing acoustically. All of our nylon string sets come as a 6 string "bump" assortment (6 total strings of various gauge. See photos). Some players like thinner, low tension strings while others like thicker, higher tension stings. We offer a wide array of thickness and tension all in one package of strings! Our string sets include rubber dipped metal ends. NO KNOTS to come untied in the middle of your set! We are proud to be the only company offering this configuration. Our strings sound great when played acoustic or amplified. They wont tear your fingers up if you need to play 3 sets in one night, and they stay in tune in hot/cold/humid/dry climates. Perfect for Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Bluegrass, Country/Western, and much much more! The string sizes included in each pack are: .170, .155, .130, .105, .095, .080 (sizes in inches). If your bass has never had non-steel strings installed, please keep in mind that some modification of the tailpiece string slots, bridge string notches, nut string notches, and tuning machine string holes may be required. This is completely normal, and will not prevent you from switching to other string types in the future. Please measure your bass before ordering. If you are not confident making these adjustments yourself, please consult a professional luthier or more experienced bass player for assistance. These strings are not recommended for school orchestra students.
