Velvet Double Bass Strings
Velvet Strings Made in Switzerland
Upton Bass String Instrument Co. is proud to announce we now carry Velvet Bass Strings! Velvet Strings from Switzerland offer handcraft contemporary computer-aided string design in a quest for the most beautiful, expressive sound of all. At Upton Bass, we know what it's like to have a great sounding instrument, and Velvet strings are an integral part of that.
Velvet believes, round full tones and the greatest possible sound transmission are achieved by uniform unloading of the bridge. The strings have been designed so that the force required at standard pitch is the same for each string.
Here at Upton Bass, we are partial to the Garbo Bass String. Garbo's are a bit thicker in diameter 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.
