VELVET Strings

philibis, 15.09.2012
These VELVET strings are unique and truly excellent. There is no material more supple and solid than silk. Plus it sounds great. I first velvet GARBO, and a Sol en anima. Then I also tried COMPASS, finer, it looks like the metal game but with the sound gut. Interesting. All are very close to the sound and game hose but without the diameter, a round sound, very powerful and very soft play, very easy, much less tension that greatly relieves pressure on the table (I have a very old bass who suffers). It's really good for swing, jazz, song. I no longer play classic. It goes very well with amplification (static or dynamic, no piezo of course!) Better than with the metal strings. For the bow, it is true that it is more delicate, but if you know well master the sound comes well. COMPASSs are best handled here. This will be more difficult for beginners with GARBOs. After having tried many possibilities in metal strings, I tested this formula and I do not regret it. Certainly they are more expensive, but they also last longer with a constant sound. They require a particular attention to the installation but it is easy to make (clear notice). If you also change the tailpiece tie (a velvet tie or an old string in a gutter) it drastically changes the vibration of the whole and you feel the difference is an extra power gain. There is no photo. What the manufacturer's arguments (taken over by the vendors) say is true. They will not discount me for this favorable argument, but you really have to recognize the quality of these unique strings. We must continue to promote them and sell them and especially try them if you are fed up with the stiffness of metal strings. It may be lower the price ...

On my bass unfortunately not to use

Dieter446, 31.01.2013
On the basis of good reviews, I wanted to know it and bought the Velvet Compass 180. The Velvet Compass strings were unfortunately not to be used on my bass. The strings are relatively thin, so thinner than the Evah Pirazzi I usually use. The sound is thin and metallic, the basses are missing. Regardless of the string position, the strings are very fast. The feel of the game is not so pleasant because of the roughness of the strings. The playability with bow is normal, thus not better as with the Pirazzi.

In my view, the price is not justified (also Obligatos or Spirocores sound far better for me), but on another bass it may be better, which is nevertheless always dependent on many factors and, of course, also a little taste.

I have a very good bass bass, which with the Evah Pirazzi sounds very good and can be played wonderfully. I will stay at the moment.
