Helicore Orchestra and Hybrid bass stringsD'Addario Prelude

We've had lots of requests for more affordable strings for developing players; the Preludes from D'Addario are just that.

Prelude bass strings are multi-stranded steel core strings that are affordable and flexible, making them ideal for students and young players. The strings are designed to produce a warm tone quality with good bow response.

The core design is more flexible than a solid core, and the reduced tension and better flexibility makes for strings that are very easy to play, especially for younger, developing players. Excellent for student orchestra basses, the strings provide a clear, warm sound that blends well across the ensemble.



  • Warm tone from steel strings
  • Easier tension
  • Designed for bowing and pizzicato
  • A true "Student" string
  • Great for those on a budget!

Corelli 380 (Nickel) Upright Bass Strings
Corelli 380 (Nickel) Upright Bass Strings

Corelli 380 strings are a bit thicker - both in physical diameter, and tonal color - than the 370 strings that Bob likes so much. A little darker, not as detailed; but they are a somewhat conventional string that is quite easy on student budgets without being a "cheap" string. Warmer steel string vibe with a middle of the road tone.

String Set: Corelli 350A 1/2 SIZE Upright Bass Strings

Corelli's versatile and articulate strings use a core design that is pretty easy on the hands (it's one reason they're Bob's favorite!) and they bow very well. The 350A have similar sound and feel as the 370s, but are sized specifically for 1/2 size instruments.
