Great strings for the Doghouse Bass

Claus aus R., 17.02.2014
These strings have nylon core, which is flatwound with nylon on the G and D strings, and with monel on the A and E strings. The strings have a comfortable soft feel, with a lighter tension than most steel strings, and good tone and volume.

I play Bluegrass, Jazz and Country-Blues. They are flexible and durable enough for comfortable slapping, but because of the different materials they sounds completely different from each other. The top strings have kind of a "tan" color to the wrapping, so they almost appear to be gut strings from a distance. They have a light feel but still have a warm tone. You might consider this set to be a alternative to gut strings if you want some of that flavor -- but with more definition and longer sustain than real gut. Furthermore the strings sounds brilliant for a long time and need no care!

All things considered great strings for the doghouse!

For me the best strings I know.

14.06.2014
I have been playing double bass for more than 20 years, and have tried tens of thousands of strings - steel, gut, nylon and various combinations. I played in different bands from Swing, Rockabilly and Psychobilly to Rhythm'n'Blues. I now play the strings on all my basses.

For me, these strings are the perfect mix of good tone and easy playability. In contrast to most other nocturnal strings, these rotosounds have a strong sound, so that the bass can both well-lobed and plucked well.
In contrast to all the other nylons strings that I know, they have a real tone that deserves the name. The sound is not so clear as with strings with steel core, but the strings play like nylons strings.

The only defenses are, from my point of view, the different wraps (E + A with steel and D + G with nylon wound). Since the slap sounds different and you do not use magnetic pickups. So if I had a desire at Rotosound free, then I would have a uniformly wound with steel set.
