Thomastik-Infeld Double Bass Strings: Spirocore, Belcanto, and more

Thomastik Double Bass Strings

Welcome to the Thomastik Double Bass String Selection at Upton Bass.

From the classic jazz growling Thomastik Spirocore of Ray Brown's sound to the new innovative multi-purpose strings like the Thomastik Belcanto, Thomastik of Vienna has been providing quality bass strings for many, many years.  Another long time favorite are the Thomastik Superflexible, a medium-good string for those on a budget that need to be able to play both pizz and arco.

Are you a double bassist who just HAS to have that Obligato sound but you can't quite fall in love with the Obligato E and A string...that roll, and feel of the string moving just too much? Gary's Blended Set is a beautiful pairing of Pirastro's Obligato and Thomastik's Spirocore S42. Save yourself from the hassle of ordering individual bass strings, as we have combined some of our classics into a best-selling blended set that is sure to please.

Thomastik-Infeld: 80 Years in the Heart of Vienna

In 1919, two former officers of the Austrian monarchy, violin maker, Dr. Franz Thomastik, and civil engineering specialist, Otto Infeld, decided to become collaborators. They co-founded the company, invented the steel string and thus caused a revolution in the music world.

Suddenly the conventional gut string was challenged by a new string with the highest quality of tone, precision, and reliability. It was received enthusiatically by virtuosi across the world.

To the present, an enormous variety of strings with this new exciting sound for bowed and plucked instruments are produced at the homebase of Thomastik-Infeld, right in the heart of Vienna, the world´s music capital.

Thomastik-Infeld constructs and manufactures machines for producing strings in its own workshops. With a staff of 190 people, it produces yearly over 3.000 different strings. 97% of them are exported to more than 100 countries.
