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.

The core material of Pirastro Passione double bass strings is a high-tensile rope made from carbon steel which is wound with chrome steel. They have a round, noble and very warm sound fundament combined with a complex overtone spectrum which results in a deep sound. The Passione bass strings have great projection with a big tone and powerful volume, these strings are especially suited for arco playing. Their response is instantaneous and very flexible, with a clear distinction between the notes in fast passages. Passione double bass strings start and vibrate very easily, with only a little bow pressure needed for sound production. They have immediate playability and absolute tuning stability. 5-string set: Due to the reduced tension of the B5-string the set vibrates freely. Gauge “strong”: Compared to the medium orchestra set the sound is more brilliant and the string tension is higher.
