To keep your double bass performing at its best, one of the most important things to pay attention to is the condition of its strings. As well, if you're looking for a way to fine-tune its sound and draw a different character from the instrument, changing the strings is a great way to do it. Whatever the reason is that you're searching for double bass strings, you've arrived at the right section to find them.

There are a lot of different attributes that affect the way a double bass string sounds and how it feels to play. Core type is definitely at the top of the list; for some examples of these, take a look at Thomastik's string selections. The "Dominant" series are synthetic-core, which are designed to behave similarly to the gut strings that all double basses once used. They're perfect for players looking for a deeply classical sound, subtle responsiveness and great tuning stability.

If you're in need of strings that have excellent flexibility and last even longer than synthetic core, consider rope or cable-core strings like the Thomastik Superflexible or Belcanto sets. You can use these strings in virtually any setting, but you'll find them especially well-suited to playing arco. Or, if you'd like the longest-lasting strings you can get your hands on, check out stranded-core sets like D'Addario's Helicore or Thomastik's Spirocore series. These tend to be specialized for certain types of playing, so be sure to take the strings' intended use into account when making your choice.

If you play an electric double bass, it's a good idea to look for strings designed specifically with those instruments in mind. The D'Addario NS610 Electric Traditional Bass Strings are a good example, with a traditional sound and feel. They're made with stranded steel cores, which makes them equally capable whether your bass uses piezo or magnetic pickups.

No matter your playing style or the sort of double bass that you play, there are definitely some great strings here for you. Choosing the right set of double bass strings doesn't have to be a challenge: start by deciding the "personality" you want to get out of your strings, and you'll have no trouble narrowing the options down from there.
