Thomastik
Since 1919, when two former officers of the Austrian monarchy, violin maker, Dr. Franz Thomastik, and civil engineering specialist, Otto Infeld, decided to collaborate on a new, steel string (which would be a revolution, compared to the gut strings which were the state of the art at the time). They now have over 80 years of creating strings in the heart of Vienna.
Thomastik Belcanto Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik Belcanto Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik's rope core strings were designed to be equally good for both arco and pizz (aka a "hybrid" string). Their bowed response is quite good, with nice tonal variation (based on your technique and approach), and they have a very musical, warm pizz sound with a very sweet sustain. They have a comfortable, flexible feel, and a tone that fits seamlessly into a wide variety of genres.

String Set: Thomastik Dominant Upright Bass Strings
String Set: Thomastik Dominant Upright Bass Strings
Dominants don't get a lot of press, but they have a long-time fan club of dedicated players, due to their dark, gut string-like character. Responsive for a stranded perlon core, they bow very well and deliver a nice and thumpy, short pizzicato sustain.

Thomastik Spirocore Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik Spirocore Upright Bass Strings
The ubiquitous Spirocores; among the first high-quality steel strings made, they're an old favorite for jazz and other pizz styles, and have the (deserved) reputation for exceedingly long life. Big, booming pizz tone, and full-bodied arco (though there are easier strings to bow), set these as a benchmark -- ask most anyone to describe a bass string, they'll probably compare them to Spiros. They're available in almost any variation, from weich (light) gauge, 1/2 size, 5ths tuning, Solo, and more.

Thomastik SuperFlexible Upright Bass Strings
Thomastik SuperFlexible Upright Bass Strings
Superflexible strings feature a multi-strand steel core with chrome-steel winding, which makes the feel of the strings, well... super-flexible. They have a hybrid sort of appeal, in that they are equally good for bowing and for pizz, and have a "middling" sort of tone and sustain that can be used in a variety of different genres without drawing unwanted attention to themselves for sounding out of place.
