The Garbos have a thicker diameter and a big, dark and beefy sound. Great for jazz pizz players, they have a punchy tone that can often "hold its own" with a drum set. They have a solid core, which provides a solid and distinctive power in the lower mid frequency range, and they are clear and assertive with the familiar "kick" as the note begins.

Very full sounding, with even tension (approx 25kg) across the set.

The Garbo G Gut Set substitutes Velvet's plain Gut G for the standard G. The other strings are regular Garbo D, A and E strings. Tension on the gut G string is slightly lower than the other strings (23 Kg)

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.

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.

The Anima strings have a thin string profile with very nice articulation and sustain. They therefore fit well into jazz and contemporary styles; but as an added bonus, they also bow well. Featuring Velvet's balanced tension, where each string has the same exact tension at pitch for smooth transition from string to string.

Velvet Blue Double Bass Strings
Velvet Blue Double Bass Strings

Velvet's Blue string set is their first which doesn't feature a silk core - it's a synthetic, carefully chosen to lower cost while retaining the Velvet sound and feel. They do a pretty good job of it, too; this string works well as a hybrid, with fast response and nice volume, and clear articulation. It does have a bit more brightness than Velvet's other string sets. Featuring Velvet's balanced tension, where each string has the same exact tension at pitch for smooth transition from string to string.
