The NS610 Traditional Double Bass Set features a stranded steel core, with nickel windings and is constructed and tensioned similarly to acoustic bass strings for a warm tone and great bow response.

Stranded steel core strings feature a core made out of very thin steel wires braided together in a rope-like matrix. This provides the strength of steel but with exceptional flexibility and elasticity. The complexity of the stranded core affords strings a wider range of tone than that of solid steel strings, with a tonal palette that is generally brighter and more focused when compared to gut or synthetic core strings but with a rich, low end response. They provide players with easy bow response, often favored by the lower strings, as well as a subtle touch for those who play electric instruments or alternative styles.

  • 4-string double bass string set
