Whatever Your Style There's A Set For You

INNOVATION Double Bass Strings are a major development for double bass players of all musical persuasions. They meet every requirement, having sufficient lift or edge to the note when playing pizzicato and exciting articulation when bowing. The unique non metallic core holds its pitch and is virtually unaffected by climatic changes.

The two main sets '140H' and '140B' give 'Gut' quality with the reliability and long life of metal cored strings and will enhance any double bass. Your initial impression on playing either set will be the ease of sound production and articulation both for pizzicato and arco. These qualities, when using set '140B' are particularly beneficial on older instruments that began life fitted with gut strings and will now benefit from the 'Greater Gut' quality of this set.

A 'Solo' set is available along with set '140H' in 1/2", 1/4 and 1/8 sizes.

Whilst both of our sets are suitable for jazz and orchestral playing, as a guide when choosing your first set of INNOVATION we would suggest the '140H' for Jazz and the '140'B for Orchestral playing, the '140H' having the brighter sound.

1999 saw the introduction of our 90140BB 'Rock-A-Billy' Black and 90140RB 'Rock-A-Billy' Red sets. Since then our range has expanded to cover all styles of double bass playing including Bluesgrass, Psycho Billy and more.

2016 saw the introduction of our 90140P 'Polychrome' hybrid set with a new non metallic core. Perfect for a wide variety of genres, including Jazz and Orchestral.
