Kaplan double bass strings are aimed at the most discerning orchestral musicians. Kaplan strings offer a rich tonal colour palette and superb bowing response in a beautifully balanced set. The set provides clarity and warmth from low to high registers and allows versatility and control throughout the dynamic spectrum.
Kaplan double bass strings started development in 2010 with New York Bassist Kurt Muroki who was looking for a set of strings that would work across Chamber music, orchestral and movie playing. The goals for the new Kaplan strings were, easy to play, good bow response and extremely even throughout the bass’ range. One of the benefits of Kaplan bass strings is that they are able to be played very fast without losing their tone or clarity.
Scaled to fit 3/4 size bass with a playing length of 41 3/4 inches (1060mm), medium tension strings are optimized for a majority of players.
