Jargar double bass strings were developed by a member of the Royal Danish Oprea Orchestra who was interested in string quality and sound. He experimented for some time and then started Jargar strings in 1956.
Jargar bass strings produce a big, well-balanced, warm tone. They have great projection, especially in the higher frequencies. They have a very even and similar sound in every position. Harmonics are easily achieved and the tuning stability of these strings is excellent. The Dolce version of these Jargar double bass strings can be tuned up for solo playing. However, the Forte and Medium variants can only be used for orchestra tuning.
These bass strings come in three different tensions; Forte, Medium and Dolce. We sell them as complete sets of strings or singularly
Jargar double bass strings are made in Denmark by Jargar Strings.
