Pirastro Bass Rosin Medium

Pirastro Bass Rosin is an opaque yellow soft rosin with good grip. Pirastro developed this style of rosin for double basses so its texture and lightness will complement your instrument's natural sound.

Pirastro Oliv double bass strings are finely wound and polished, handmade gut strings, suitable for arco and pizzicato. They have a dark and powerful sound.

The sheep gut core of the Oliv strings is manufactured, wound and polished in the traditional way, by hand. They are wound with chrome steel

Oliv strings can withstand a heavier bow arm and they sound dark and powerful when bowed. They are dark and growly sound when played pizzicato and offer a great diversity of tone colours with big tone volume.

Other Pirastro gut strings to consider are: Eudoxa and Chorda
