Best kept secret in bass strings

    Comments about D'Addario Prelude Series Double Bass String Set:

    I'm a full time professional and have been playing for almost 30 years. I picked up a set of preludes several years ago on a whim to try out on one of my basses. They feel great, sound good, are great for bowing and pizz, and are generally underpriced. I keep my main recording bass equipped with strings that cost 3 times the price, but I keep preludes on my other basses because of their low tension. Since I'm amplified on my 300 or so gigs a year, you'd never hear the difference between these strings and the $200+ sets. Don't hesitate to try these strings. If you're a heavy gigger, your hands will thank you, and so will your pocketbook.

    Comments about D'Addario Prelude Series Double Bass String Set:

    For the occasional upright player that I am, (mostly bass guitar), these strings are more than adequate on my Palatino.

      Comments about D'Addario Prelude Series Double Bass String Set:

      If you've made a home made upright bass, which I have, and want an inexpensive set of strings for it these are the ones you need. My "doghouse" bass I made on a 3/4 scale and I got the Preludes because I didn't need an expensive bass string set. These work fine for country, bluegrass, even jazz. Mine have lasted for over two years and are still performing well.
