NSFW610 Contemporary Double Bass Strings feature a solid core, flatwound construction and deliver a full, powerful sound with a brighter tone and lower tension than the NS610 Traditional Double Bass strings.

Solid steel core strings play with a sound that is more projected, focused, and clearer than that of gut or synthetic core materials. These have the longest lifetime of any type of string, due to the stability, strength, resilience and durability of the core's structure.

  • Single low 'B' string
  • 3/4 size bass with a playing length of 106mm (41 3/4")
  • NS standard double bass string length (46.5″ wound, 54″ overall) 
  • Light tension
  • NS standard fit
  • Solid steel core provides optimum playability with a bright, modern tone
  • Rich acoustic sound
  • Works with magnetic and piezo pickup systems
Developed by NS Design in partnership with D'Addario, this single low 'B' string can be used on any NS 5 string upright bass or to create a custom low tuning on a 4 string instrument (D/A/E/B). NS Electric Double Bass strings can also be used on any instrument with standard playing lengths, but shorter overall lengths (no tailpiece).
