IMPORTANT NOTE

Special Order ItemThis string set is a "special order item," which means that it is normally a non-stock item. This means that, if you purchase these strings, we will need to acquire the set from the manufacturer or a distributor, which may take anywhere from a couple days (normally) to a couple of weeks (rare, but we'll let you know). It also means that we are unable to provide overnight or two-day options for these strings.

We offer this set as a non-stock item because customers have asked for them, and they're not always easy to find at retailers. Due to their non-stock status, we only sell complete sets -- no "singles" can be purchased for this set. Also be aware that as a special-order item, the strings are not returnable.

Pirastro Original Flexocor

The core material of this string is a high-tensile rope made from carbon steel, which is then wound with chrome steel.

It is reportedly an outstanding set for arco, as it can withstand a powerful and heavy bowing arm. It has a brilliant sound with a short sustain, with great projection and "big tone volume." The strings are very stable and should be instantly playable. They have a very quick response, which is slightly quicker than Pirastro's Original Flat-Chrome.

Since we're not as personally familiar with these strings, our descriptions of them are primarily based on manufacturer information, but we're happy to add more info as we discover it -- and feel free to Email us your experiences with them!

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.)
