Truly amazing strings!

These strings totally transformed the sound of my bass. I was thinking of buying a new bass when I had my old set of synthetic strings but changed my mind when I got these.

These strings produce great volume, shaking bass and a good punchy sound! I would say they are quite similar to plain gut but with more substance and clarity. The tension of the strings is also low and they are easy and comfortable to play. These strings are ideal for jazz players seeking a more deep sound and don't like playing with an amplifier.

The only minus with the strings is that they started to unwind pretty fast, but Velvet got it covered with their one-year warranty. That means that if your string breaks in any way (as long as it's not abused) you can get a new one!

Great pizzicato strings!

Velvet Garbo have a great pizzicato sound and a nice gut string feel. Warm and mellow/dark tone but still good attack and punch. Good volume. Perfect for a traditional jazz sound (but also other styles of course, such as blues, pop, etc). Slapping works just fine as well. Not recommended for arco playing. Velvet Garbo is a bit thicker in string diameter than other strings, but they have a rather low tension and is very smooth to play. The quality seems to be good, they still works properly for me. Overall I like these strings a lot, but I only play pizzicato.
