Description

Spirocore strings have a flexible multiwire spiral rope core which results in a longer vibration period with reduced inertia. They are highly responsive and long lasting and are ideal for both pizzicato and bowing. Widely regarded as the reference standard in double bass strings.

If the G string was ok it would be a 5 star rating
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have used Thomastik Spirocore for years and I'm very happy with the sound on my 300 yr old bass.

Cons: On this particular set the G string is quite dull compared to the other three.

Spirocore Weich bass strings
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I'm principally a jazz bassist and this is my 2nd set of these strings. Previously I used Pirastro Flexocore - a good string but a lot heavier. The soft Spirocores give a good sound, bright but not lacking in warmth. They are a lot easier to pluck and sustain and softer on the left hand too.

Cons: They seem quite expensive - a set of strings is a big investment, so I tend not to experiment too much with different bands and sets.

very good supplier
0 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: A popular string for my jazz customers.

Cons: Unfortunate error. The 3/4 size set ordered was supplies with one 1/2 size string. However the replacement arrived by return post.

Other: I find it difficult to use the points earned as credit against a new order?
