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 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. Over the years, players have seen success with lighter-gauge orchestral strings, like the Thomastik Superflexible (Solo gauge) and others.

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 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!

D'Orazio Psychobilly Spyrachrome Upright Bass Strings (Light Tension)

Rockabilly players who prefer a more aggressive "click" will sometimes prefer a steel-based string to get it. These strings are tensioned for highly physical slap play, and since they have a steel core, they have excellent magnetic response for use with a magnetic pickup. Made in Italy by a company with well over a century of string-making experience!

Innovation Rockabilly - 140RB (Rock a Billy) Med/Light Tension Strings
Innovation Rockabilly - 140RB (Rock a Billy) Med/Light Tension Strings

Innovation Rockabilly Strings were the first offering in their "Slap" line of strings. Essentially a light version of their "Ultra Black" strings, they have the same distinctive black flatwound outer winding. The flat windings give them a slightly "stiffer" feel for a little more stability and definition than the similarly-tensioned "Slap" strings offered by Innovation.

Innovation Rockabilly REDS - 90140RR Med Tension Red Strings

Let's be honest, it takes a pretty special player to rock red strings. And these new strings from Innovation hold nothing back. Modeled after the Silver and Golden Slap sets, they make a big visual impression with their bold red windings -- which look particularly cool on a blonde bass! And to match their appearance, they have a gutsy, slap-friendly tone that really works in some of the more "brash" music styles. Special care went into their development to get the string balance "just right." No holds barred!

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.
