Pirastro Eudoxa Wound Gut Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Eudoxa Wound Gut Upright Bass Strings
Popular among jazz players who want a little more brightness and a smoother bowing surface, but with a traditional natural gut feel and vibe. Real gut strings, wound in silver flatwound tape for a great feel and durability. A little more pizz character than the similar Oliv strings, which instead have a chrome-steel winding.
    Extended Strings Available: High C String Available for this string by special order
Sets AND Single Strings are available (click through to order)

Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Upright Bass Strings
These strings have become hugely popular in a short period of time, because they are ideal for musicians playing many styles, with excellent bowed response and good sustain. Their pizz tone has some of the desirable tonal characteristics of gut, with a modern edge to their sound. And despite having a synthetic core, they're more stable (with less roll) than many other similar strings. Warm arco tone rounds out a great string set -- which is available in Medium/Orchestral, Weich (light), and Solo gauges.

Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Slap Gut/Synthetic Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Slap Gut/Synthetic Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro really did their homework with the Evah Pirazzi Slap string. It has the soft feel and the prominent "click" that many rockabilly and psychobilly slappers are looking for, but it's also great for standard pizz playing, as well, with a real organic vibe. And the strings even bow really well! G and D strings available in plain gut OR synthetic core. Balance from string to string is exemplary; whether you're talking about tone or feel, you don't notice at all when you move from string to string. More than just a slap string!

Pirastro Flexocor Deluxe Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Flexocor Deluxe Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro's "rope core" (steel strands wound like rope) are excellent arco strings, with a warm, full tone and easy playability. Nice pizz tone, too, if you favor a slightly more "old skool" vibe -- with less bright detail, a thumpier sort of attack, and strong fundamental.

Pirastro Jazzer MEDIUM Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Jazzer MEDIUM Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro's Jazzer ropecore steel strings are recommended primarily for pizzicato players, though they can also be a good hybrid string for players who gig many styles. They have an extended sustain, and a clear, modern sound. They are a ropecore string with good flexibility.

Pirastro Obligato Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Obligato Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro's Obligato strings have a solid synthetic core with a very thin metal wrap. They do a pretty good job emulating gut strings, and have a real organic vibe to them; they also have a fairly pronounced "roll" to their pizz feel, meaning that they rotate a little under the plucking fingers. You get used to this, though, and they do have quite a satisfying thump to their tone. They also bow quite well.

Pirastro Obligato 1/4 size and 1/2 size Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Obligato 1/4 size and 1/2 size Upright Bass Strings
The solid core, gut-like goodness of Pirastro's Obligato strings is available in smaller sizes for 1/2 and 1/4 sized basses. Very nice alternative to the steel strings that are so common for smaller sized basses, and very nice bowability for orchestral use.

Pirastro Oliv Wound Gut Upright Bass Strings (Olive)
Pirastro Oliv Wound Gut Upright Bass Strings (Olive)
The Oliv is often considered the "tops" among the wrapped gut strings; natural gut wrapped in chrome steel provides a strong, dark tone with short sustain. A little warmer in tone to the very similar Eudoxa strings (which are wound instead with silver tape). Available in sets -- but it's very common to match the Oliv G with other strings, and we do sell them separately as well.

Pirastro Passione Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Passione Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro's primo Passione strings are specifically designed for orchestral players, featuring outstanding bowability, and a very full-bodied, warm arco tone. For dedicated arco players, these are hard to beat; they have an excellent range of articulation -- and can really sound big when you dig in. Their pizz tone is an "orchestral pizz," meaning that it has the plunking, short-sustained timbre you'd expect to hear in an orchestral composition (not so much from someone jamming out in a jazz club.)

Pirastro Flat-Chromesteel Upright Bass Strings
SPECIAL ORDER ITEM - These ropecore strings have a very clear and brilliant sound, making them project more than other strings; a little more precision is required to bow well, but worth the effort, especially for solo material. Also not bad for contemporary pizz!
