Rotosound RS88S Tru Bass Black Nylon Flatwound Bass Guitar Strings 65-115 Short Scale

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.

**PLEASE NOTE** These are SHORT Scale Strings.

The string measures 32.5 inches from the ball end to the start of the silk covering. N.B. These strings have silk at both ends.

Gauge RS88S - 65, 75, 100, 115

Rotosound Tru Bass Flatwound RS88S Bass Strings 65-115 Black Nylon, Short Scale

I have these strings on another bass which I haven't used for months. For the first time two weeks ago I played the bass though my new rig and the difference to my standard stringed bass was amazing in depth and tone.
However with this corona virus thing I haven't played with the band so the bass hasn't been fired up through my rig as yet but I have no doubt the strings will be as I expect with a great tone and real depth.

Rotosound Tru Bass Flatwound RS88S Bass Strings 65-115 Black Nylon, Short Scale

Until recently I was limited in were I could get the correct gauge strings for my custom made 28 inch short scale bass. These tape wound flats with 115 gauge low E fit perfectly.
They sound smooth, and clear even when tuning to drop D.
