Gut Double Bass Strings

GUT Double Bass Strings

Historically speaking, double bass strings have always been made from gut. It wasn't until the mid-20th century that double bass strings were available in other materials such as steel or synthetics. There are many reasons why a double bassist may choose gut strings over synthetic strings, or vice versa, but one thing is certain: handmade gut strings have a distinct warm tone that is unparalleled by any other material.

Gut double bass strings are synonymous with classic baroque ensembles and old-style sounds such as rockabilly, blues, jazz, or bluegrass. They provide that dark “thumpy” sound heard on recordings from the 40's and 50's, and are a lower tension string that is easier to slap. The gut sound is warm with long sustain, and has great volume and fundamental.

Whether you choose an all-gut string set such as the Clef Upright Bass Strings, the highly rated Clef Jazz Set with silver wound E and A strings, or a Pirastro classic such as the Chorda: you can be sure that all gut strings are handmade to the highest quality standards. Whichever set you choose, be sure to add-on our Gut String Oil, as it will greatly extend the life of ANY natural gut string set.
