Pyramid 648

Electric Bass Strings SetThe strings are made of a magnetic core and are wound with a black nylon flat wire. You get an excellent sound with easy response and have a soft attack thanks to the nylon flat wire. The Black Tape Nylon strings are perfect for acoustic bass and fretless bass and bring over a double bass-like sound. They produce no bothersome finger noise.

Even better than the flatwounds? Yes!

ProgBass, 14.02.2014
Many fanzines and people recommend those strings to install on a fretless bass to sound more like a contrabass. My 500/1 Hofner Beatles bass is a fretted version. As you might remember Paul McCartney used those strings on the Let it Be / Get Back Sessions and the Abbey Road record on his fretted violin Hofner Bass. Those strings are thicker than others, but do not be afraid of that they fit perfect on the bass and they can be played very comfortable indeed. McCartney used the black nylons by Rotosound. They are contrary to the pyramids as you have to file the saddle. Compared to the Daddario ones which tend to burst the nylon wiring those strings are really unique, sound more warm, more contrabass. Put them on your bass and test them and get comfortable with them.

Suitable for Beatles sound

Alex270, 31.05.2016
Paul McCartney plays the Beatles album "Abbey Road" Rotosound Tru Bass 88 ", but these strings are extremely hard to get because they're out of production, and the Pyramid 648s are basically black, nylon, flatwound and shortscale The Tru Bass 88. And they seem to sound that way or something like that ... On my Höfner 500/1 Contemporary that sounds pretty authentic to Beatles, even though the bass sounds more modern than its expensive Made-in-Germany brothers and sisters.
With the right setting on the amp and if you use the neck PU you get an extremely full, dull sound, which is already very much in the direction of double bass.

Minor criticism: The strings are not black at all. They are dark green. But that does not really matter, because you only see it in daylight. And in which rehearsal room, or club, stage, ... already comes bright daylight? : P

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
