Corelli 370 Upright Bass Strings (and 360 Solo Gauge)
Corelli 370 Upright Bass Strings (and 360 Solo Gauge)
Corelli's versatile and articulate strings are easy on the hands (it's a reason why they're one of Bob's all-time favorites!) and they bow very well. Steel strings, with full, detailed sound. Medium, Forte, and Extra Forte Gauges Available; but read our note, as their gauges run kind of "thin" and "light" as compared to most of their contemporaries.

Corelli 380 (Nickel) Upright Bass Strings
Corelli 380 (Nickel) Upright Bass Strings
Corelli 380 strings are a bit thicker - both in physical diameter, and tonal color - than the 370 strings that Bob likes so much. A little darker, not as detailed; but they are a somewhat conventional string that is quite easy on student budgets without being a "cheap" string. Warmer steel string vibe with a middle of the road tone.

D'Addario Helicore ORCHESTRAL and SOLO Upright Bass Strings
This item is made in USA!With extra damping materials, this version of D'Addario's Helicore string set -- the "Orchestral" -- is designed for the player who primarily plays arco (with a bow). Played pizzicato (plucked), they have a warm and dark fundamental tone with a shorter sustain and quicker decay than the other Helicore Strings. The SOLO strings are similar to the Orchestra strings, but gauged specifically for tuning one whole step up from "standard" tuning; this is specifically for those playing solo pieces, to take advantage of the slightly higher range (and fingerings).

Innovation Braided Orchestral - (140B) Mid-High Tension Strings
Innovation Braided Orchestral - (140B) Mid-High Tension Strings
The braided nylon core set from Innovation is wound in chrome tape, making for an affordable, orchestral gauge string that works very well under the bow - but also has less "brashness" than steel strings for playing with your fingers. A nice, warm thump - without losing too much definition - characterizes their pizzicato tone, making them a good hybrid string for players of both pizz and arco, especially for traditional genres like folk, bluegrass, and Americana.

Innovation GoldenSlaps - 140GLP (Golden Slap) Low Tension Strings
These are some of our most popular strings! The Innovation Golden Slap Strings are a "Hybrid" of sorts; a warm, dark gut-like tone, but with less tension - great for slapstyle Rockabilly and Psychobilly. They also have a nice, middling pizzicato tone; not too bright, with nice "thump" -- they're a favorite for those playing bluegrass. Identical to the "Silver Slaps" other than their color; also are basically a lighter, golden-colored version of the "Super Silver" strings.

Innovation Psychoslaps for psychobilly- (Psycho Slaps) Medium-Low Tension Strings
Innovation Psychoslaps for psychobilly- (Psycho Slaps) Medium-Low Tension Strings
Innovation Psychobilly strings are designed specifically for Psychobilly players, to get the sound and feel required by the style. They are similar in design to the Silver Slaps and Golden Slaps, featuring a comfortable low tension. However, they are a bit thicker in diameter to help accommodate the ultra-fast slapping often required in "psychobilly" style music genres. With nylon core and windings, these strings don't work with magnetic pickups.

Innovation Rockabilly Strings were the first offering in their "Slap" line of strings. Essentially a light version of their "Ultra Black" strings, they have the same distinctive black flatwound outer winding. The flat windings give them a slightly "stiffer" feel for a little more stability and definition than the similarly-tensioned "Slap" strings offered by Innovation.
