Pirastro Original Flat Chrome Double Bass Strings


  • 3/4 Size
  • Standard Orchestral Tuning (G D A E)
  • Medium Tension
  • Fantastic arco strings

Pirastro Original Flat Chrome double bass strings are especially suited to arco playing with a short sustain, producing a very brilliant sound. Favoured by professional orchestral bass players we sell normal sets of Original Flat Chrome strings and sets made up with a C extension 2.10m E string. The strings come in solo and orchestral tuning with orchestral being the most popular. There is also a low B (B5) Original Flat Chrome string that we stock for 5 string double basses.

With their high tensile rope core made from carbon steel, Pirastro Original Flat Chromes have great tuning stability. They have a very quick response under the bow and produce a brilliant well-projected sound with a short sustain, making them ideal for arco playing

  • The core material is a high-tensile rope made from carbon steel which is wound with chrome steel.
  • This is an outstanding set for arco, which can withstand a powerful and heavy bowing arm.
  • A very brilliant sound with a short sustain.
  • Powerful sound with great projection, which is slightly greater than Original Flexocor.
  • Big tone volume.
  • Instantly playable and absolutely stable.
  • Very quick response.
