From the Manufacturer
The Traditional Double Bass Set is constructed and tensioned similarly to acoustic bass strings for a warm tone and great bow response. Designed for electric upright basses with standard playing lengths, but shorter overall lengths (no tailpiece).
Designed in partnership with Ned Steinberger and NS Design, the D’Addario NS Electric Strings can be used on electric instruments to bring out the best in them. Each string is designed to enhance the expressive range of tone sought after by the most discerning players. The set consists of regular tuning strings (G, D, A, E). Additional low B and high C are available as single strings.
D’Addario, the world’s largest manufacturer of musical instrument strings, is known worldwide for unsurpassed quality and consistency. D’Addario continues to develop and manufacture exceptional strings and accessories for violin, viola, cello and double bass, incorporating innovative packaging that reduces waste and provides protection from corrosion. All D’Addario strings are manufactured in the U.S.A. using proprietary, digitally controlled, state-of-the-art machinery for unmatched performance, set after set.
Prelude bass strings are multi-stranded steel core strings that produce a warm tone quality with good bow response. The special core design and reduced tension makes for strings that are very easy to play, especially for developing players. Prelude bass strings maintain a clear, warm sound that blends well across the ensemble. The 3/4 scale strings are gauged specifically for 3/4 size bass with a playing length of 41 3/4 inches (1060mm).
