Zyex double bass strings are optimised for Pizzicato playing and delivering rich tone with lots of growl. They are made from a new generation of synthetic material, creating strings that are incredibly stable under varying climatic conditions. Zyex bass strings settle in on the instrument within hours, providing a rich, complex tone with power and clarity similar to a gut string, for both pizzicato and bowing.
Zyex double bass strings are similar to Pirastro’s Evah Pirazzi, they both have a synthetic core which gives them a ‘gut like’ sound without the tuning instability of gut strings. They work equally as well under the bow and are easy to ‘start’.
Scaled to fit 3/4 size bass with a playing length of 41 3/4 inches (1060mm), the medium tension strings are optimized for a majority of players.
