Velvet Double Bass Strings Garbo, Anima, Compas 180, Blue

Velvet Double Bass Strings

Welcome to the Velvet Strings selection at Upton Bass.

Upton Bass knows what it's like to have a great sounding instrument, and Velvet Strings are an integral part of that. But don't just take our word for it: Velvet Strings are endorsed by Rufus Reid, Hans Roelofsen, Herve Jeanne, Steve LaSpina, Jim Stinnett, Shannon Wade, and Eric Revis just to name a few.

Here at Upton Bass, we are partial to the Garbo Bass String. Garbo's are a bit thicker in diameter than other Velvet Strings and have a true gut string feel with a silk core and copper winding. Garbo's offer a little more pizzazz than the Anima's, providing a rich loud tone, and are great for a nice big thumpy traditional jazz sound. Roots (Rockabilly, Bluegrass, Folk) players also enjoy the Garbo's for it's ease of playability and a nice pop when slapped. For the pizzicato or arco player looking for gut-like sound Anima Bass Strings are quick to respond and still provide some growl. Velvet's Blue are a bit easier on the wallet, and are great for the beginner or student upright bass player. If you're looking for that classic orchestral tuning string, Velvet offers Compas 180's which are great for traditional arco.

Remember, the knowledgeable staff at Upton Bass String Instrument Co is always just a phone call away for any questions you may have at +1 (860) 535-9399. You can also contact Upton Bass by email at sales@uptonbass.com. We look forward to assisting you in finding the right strings for your bass.

Velvet Strings of Switzerland uses a special silk core design, which marries the techniques of traditional hand-crafted strings with that of contemporary computer-aided strings.

In 1991 Stephan Schertler began to build strings for the double bass, initially for personal use, but he found that the softness of natural silk fiber made a great alternative to metal core strings. Thus, the birth of Velvet Strings. Schertler believes that round full tones and the greatest sound transmission are achieved by uniform unloading of the bridge, so Velvet Strings have been designed so that the force required at standard pitch is the same for each string.
