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.

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.

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

They have a great feel and tension. The tone is great on the G,D and A strings but a little undefined on the E.

As a side note, the nut of my bass needed a little filing for the strings to fit - but I do have an unusual bass (Dan Armstrong London short scale) so I don't know how much any other short scale would be affected. Also, my bass has just a single, angled wraparound bridge with very little intonation adjustment. With these strings, bridge cannot be angled far back enough on the E string side for proper intonation - all frets above 3rd being noticeably sharp. It's only the E string that suffers and I suspect basses with better, more adjustable bridges would be fine. It's more of a problem with the bass than the strings but worth considering should you be changing from thin round wounds to these with a one-piece bridge.
