  • 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.

Rotosound Tru Bass Flatwound RS885LD Bass Strings 65-135 Black Nylon, 5-String

Great strings for my fretless bass. Suit my playing style. You get what you pay for

Put them on my old 5 string, and was constrained in my choice by the scale length - they have absolutely brought it back to life. Smooth feel, rich sound, and a good deal cheaper than some others brands.
