A few brief notes about these strings:
D'Orazio designs these 3/4 size bass strings to fit on a standard 3/4 size bass. They may be too short for a 4/4 bass. Have a bass with a larger scale? Drop us a note and we'll compare measurements and figure it out.

Also, yes - I know that buying the four strings separately is considerably more than buying the set; it's not a mistake, this reflects the pricing structure of the manufacturer's pricing.
D'Orazio Rockabilly Strings
These new strings are flexible and "soft" enough for long sets of high-energy slap, but with high magnetic response for use with magnetic pickups like the Krivo or Schaller. Their metal core also provides a longevity of tone and durability that you might not get with synthetic strings.

And, some Rockabilly players like the more metallic "click" that a metal-based string provides; the nylon and other synthetics just don't provide the satisfying level of percussive goodness for their aggressive playing style. These strings are for them!

They consist of a flat wire chromesteel wound on a special "harmonic steel ropecore" that was specially created by D'Orazio after much R&D. These strings were developed in coordination of Tonino, bassist of "The Fiftyniners," to perfectly meet his specific needs for feel, sound, and volume.

Now, D'Orazio - a string maker from Italy with centuries (no lie!) of string-making under its belt - brings you a chrome-steel flat wound string that is specifically engineered for psychobilly/rockabilly and other slap styles. A lighter feel, good responsiveness, and "clacky" flatwound outer winding provides the aggressive cutting slap sounds that you've been craving. And they're affordable, too!

These are brand new to us, more information as they get into more player's hands!

Krivo Humbucking Magnetic Upright Bass Pickup (new smaller model, includes free Jack Mount)

This item is made in USA!The Krivo pickup is hand-made in Oregon. It's a specially-designed magnetic pickup in a (New for 2016 - SMALLER) wooden casing, which has been engineered to provide a more "acoustic-like" sound despite getting its input solely from the strings. For players in high-volume (Rockabilly?) situations, magnetic is the way to go to avoid feedback - and this quiet humbucker is the best option I've found. Its low-key looks and great sound really make magnetic pickups practical!


Schaller Magnetic Upright Bass Pickup

If this isn't the classic magnetic upright bass pickup I don't know what is! Single coil, shiny deco look... yep, it's the Schaller magnetic pickup. Mounts to the end of the fingerboard using two tiny wood screws, and features a volume knob. Adjustable polepieces, too!

Finally, your metal-wrapped rockabilly strings are here. Get that aggressive metallic CLACK with a string that won't leave your fingertips in tatters. Like the Psychobilly set, these work great with a magnetic pickup. But they have a touch more tension for those players who also need to play a little "straight pizz" as well, and need a reasonable pizz tone for those situations.

Thomastik SuperFlexible Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik SuperFlexible Upright Bass Strings

Superflexible strings feature a multi-strand steel core with chrome-steel winding, which makes the feel of the strings, well... super-flexible. They have a hybrid sort of appeal, in that they are equally good for bowing and for pizz, and have a "middling" sort of tone and sustain that can be used in a variety of different genres without drawing unwanted attention to themselves for sounding out of place.
