Innovation double bass strings are a leap forward for bass players who are looking for the feel and tonal quality of ‘gut’ coupled with the reliability and durability of steel. Innovation strings’ unique non-metallic core is virtually unaffected by changes in humidity & climate whether it be between the rehearsal room, concert hall or cold outdoor arena which means it holds its pitch significantly better than normal strings in changing environments.
Innovation essentially offer two main styles of string: the brighter, more percussive 140H which are perfect for Jazz, and the 140B which are much rounder sounding for orchestral styles. But, do not feel limited to either of these as both have bold articulation for both pizzicato are Arco playing thanks to their unique ‘gut’-like quality.
The later editions to Innovation’s range are the ‘Slap’ sets, including the popular Rock-a-Billy and Psycho-Slap double bass sets which are perfect for bands with greaser hairstyles as well as Bluegrass and Jazz!
