D'Addario Helicore ORCHESTRAL and SOLO Upright Bass Strings
D'Addario Helicore ORCHESTRAL and SOLO Upright Bass Strings
This item is made in USA!With extra damping materials, this version of D'Addario's Helicore string set -- the "Orchestral" -- is designed for the player who primarily plays arco (with a bow). Played pizzicato (plucked), they have a warm and dark fundamental tone with a shorter sustain and quicker decay than the other Helicore Strings. The SOLO strings are similar to the Orchestra strings, but gauged specifically for tuning one whole step up from "standard" tuning; this is specifically for those playing solo pieces, to take advantage of the slightly higher range (and fingerings).
    Extended and Alternate Tuning Strings Available: SOLO Gauge Strings Available for this stringLow B String Available for this stringLow E String for extensions (to low C) Available for this string

Thomastik Spirocore Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik Spirocore Upright Bass Strings
The ubiquitous Spirocores; among the first high-quality steel strings made, they're an old favorite for jazz and other pizz styles, and have the (deserved) reputation for exceedingly long life. Big, booming pizz tone, and full-bodied arco (though there are easier strings to bow), set these as a benchmark -- ask most anyone to describe a bass string, they'll probably compare them to Spiros. They're available in almost any variation, from weich (light) gauge, 1/2 size, 5ths tuning, Solo, and more.
