Description

Spirocore double bass strings are widely regarded as the best strings for Pizz and Jazz bass players.

Thomastik Spirocore bass strings are absolutely great pizzicato strings, used and loved by great jazz bassists all over the world. We stock them in solo and orchestra tuning with different tensions also available. The most popular is the 3/4 size medium orchestra set closely followed by the Weich variant.

As Thomastik say, about their Spirocore bass strings, they have a flexible multiwire spiral rope core. They offer a longer period of musical vibration and significantly reduce inertia. Spirocore double bass strings are equally effective when playing arco or pizzicato. They are highly responsive and long-lasting. Spirocore strings, widely recognised as “the reference standard” are renowned for their distinctive tone and playability.

60 years ago Thomastik-Infeld invented the spiral rope core high twist used in Spirocore strings. For 60 years and counting it still remains unrivalled! Spirocore strings stand out with a distinctive focus, a brilliant and clear top and a very powerful bottom, ideal for dark sounding instruments.

They have a very long life span and will support your every move and tone.

They impress with a long sustain, growl, punch and power but also with their great dynamic range and their multiplicity of tone colours.

Spirocore bass strings are made in Austria by Thomastik-Infeld
