Pyramid 648

Electric Bass Strings Set

The 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.

surprise
Marley Schmentonn, 24.04.2020
standard Thomann reliability when it comes to delivery, packaging...
anyway, i never heard of these before, i was looking for heavy flats for my short scale acoustic and thought i'd give these a try. Well, surprise, it looks like they'll be around for a while. Nice, thick, meaty strings with fullbodied sound, nothing like a double bass and nothing like electric bass, a personality of it's own, exactly what i wanted!

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.

Perfect Pair for Hofner Strings
JXSM, 22.06.2018
These strings are perfect for my Hofner Violin Bass. The sound is just distinct and they look great as well.

They also go a long way and you can use the same strings for a larger period.

The sound of these is very special, but those strings don't have the sustain and volume of regular steel or nickel strings. It is what it is.

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