Product News:
Velvet Anima Strings are not in stock right now due to production issues at Velvet; their proprietary winding machine is currently out of service, and they are trying to get it repaired. We do not have an expectation on when the Anima will be available again - sorry for the inconvenience!

The Anima strings are thinner than Garbos, with more articulation and sustain; they also bow well. Great for jazz bassists who also do arco work! They have big volume with a warm sound, though they're not as dark as the Garbos due to their thinner diameter.

Great definition, rich bass and good balance. Velvet recommends them as their "hybrid" string, claiming that they are "suitable for practically every application from Jazz to Baroque."

The strings feature Velvet's unique "even tension" of approx 25kg per string.

Note that these strings do not have "Ball Ends" but rather loops on the tailpiece end of the strings. Looped bass strings (which are not as common as the ball ends we're used to seeing) are installed by wrapping the string around the hole in the tailpiece and back through the loop - similar to strings on a classical guitar.

The Garbos have a thicker overall diameter and a big, dark sound. With tons of punch, they're great for jazz pizz players, as they can often "hold their own" with a drum set! Featuring Velvet's balanced tension, where each string has the same exact tension at pitch for smooth transition from string to string.
