Really Nice
Bowman, 30.06.2020
I had only been playing upright bass for about a year with the strings that came with the bass itself and wanted to upgrade the strings for something that was a bit more mellow and suitable for pizz jazz style.

It's really hard to gauge what any new strings will sound like because the instrument itself is a big factor so researching new strings is very hard and the strings are very expensive. After I found out as much as I could I decided to try these and I'm very happy.

In short they're much mellower than the steel strings I had and are much easier on my fingers. They are a bit more elastic and much easier to play and really made a huge improvement for the tone I was after. I'm very glad as you don't really know what they'll be like until after you buy them and install them which is an expensive gamble.

I will be buying these again when the time comes to replace them.

Pros: Lovely mellow tone. Easy on the fingers. Easier to play than steel strings.

Cons: Pricey. But worth the investment now I've heard them on my double bass.

Presto Jazzicato
Rockabilly Slap, 11.05.2021
These really are excellent strings, i bought them to try out against conventional steel strings and was very surprised at how great they sounded with magnetic pickups, hardly any volume change at all, also a lot kinder on the fingers too being wrapped in plastic, I play a lot of Rockabilly stuff so they take quite a pounding with being slappped all night and hold out great and stay in tune.

a very good string...it has loads of thump on the front of the note for a good slap sound..the click is a little metallic but this is easily eq'd out..a really good old school pizz sound plenty of sustain but easily muted if you don't want it..the gauge and tension are ideal for steel string players who want a more old school sound..

Tolle Kontrabassaiten.
Jens O., 28.10.2009
Nachdem ich ein Jahr auf den Werksaiten des Thomann Kontrabass 111 Br
gespielt habe und meine ersten Erfahrungen gesammelt habe verspürte ich den Wunsch die Bespielbarkeit und den Sound zu verbessern.

Nach intensiver Recherche entschied ich mich für die neuen Presto Jazzicato Strings .Das Aufziehen der Saiten ist problemlos .Die Saiten sind lauter und klingen runder als die Werkssaiten.Ich spiele nur Pizzicato Jazz und Country Style deshalb weiß ich nicht genau wie sich sie Saiten gestrichen verhalten.

Obwohl die Spannung der Saiten doch etwas stärker ist als ich erwartet hatte ist die Haptik und das Spielgefühl der Saiten phantastisch. Es gelingen auf einmal Sachen die ich vorher nicht spielen konnte. Der Sound ist warm, definiert und ausgewogen. Dadurch ist das ganze Instrument enorm aufgewertet worden. Ich finde die Saiten absolut empfehlenswert
