Double Bass Strings
Students, ensemble players and folk musicians are just a few examples of bassists who tend to swear by solid steel double bass strings. And if you're ready to agree with them, there are plenty of suggested strings and sets here to get you started. Thomastik's Precision series is always a favorite, bringing the benefits of steel cores to the professional level. On the other hand, if you're a new player wanting a set that's as affordable as it is impressive, maybe The String Centre Series 50 Double Bass String Set or Recital II Bass String Set will be the way to go. Or maybe you play an NS Design electric bass? If so, check out the D'Addario NS610 NS Electric Traditional Bass Strings and NS710 NS Electric Bass/Cello Strings.
All in all, it's safe to say there are solid steel double bass strings to suit the needs of virtually any bassist. Their precise playing qualities make them a natural fit for the main instrument of a beginner, while their durability is a shoe-in for a pro's practice bass in order to save wear and tear on a second set of gut or synthetic strings. Whether you like them for their sound or their reliability, these strings are ready to deliver on either front - so all that's left to do is take a look through the lineup until you find the best ones for your tastes.
