  • Rotosound RS 885LD 65-135 TruBass 5-String

The 'Black Nylon Trubass' string was originally developed for the Burn's Black Bison Bass.

Great Strings to simulate a double bass sound on an standard bass guitar.

These strings have made the most famous appearance on the top of the 'Apple' building while Paul McCartney was playing his Hofner.

You will note that the tension is low, making this string extremely comfortable to play and the heavier gauge is due to anything lighter and the strings themselves would start to flap.

Incredible strings for fretless bass with piezo pickups

I'm now on my 2nd set of these as they provide a unique sound and feel to electro-acoustic basses.
The string guages are very thick, I had to widen the hole on the bridge for the low b string and action needed to be lifted a fair bit on a new saddle to compensate on the lower register strings. So it's been a bit of an ordeal to set up, but well worth it. The sound is fantastic for a 'simulation' of an accoustic bass, with lovely mids. Not much treble naturally available, although this also means the strings natural tone doesn't degrafe quickly. Very easy on the fingers. Great for any fretless application wanting a natural tone. Not tried with magnetic pickups, so can't comment on whether these will work on electric bass.
