The NSFW610 Contemporary 5 String Double Bass Set features a solid core, flatwound construction and delivers a full, powerful sound with a brighter tone and lower tension than the NS610 Traditional Double Bass strings. 

Solid steel core strings play with a sound that is more projected, focused, and clearer than that of gut or synthetic core materials. These have the longest lifetime of any type of string, due to the stability, strength, resilience and durability of the core's structure.

  • 5 string double bass string set, with low 'B'
  • 3/4 size bass with a playing length of 106mm (41 3/4")
  • NS standard double bass string length (46.5″ wound, 54″ overall) 
  • Light tension
  • Regular 5 string bass tuning G-D-A-E-B (high to low, in 4ths) 
  • NS standard fit
  • Solid steel core provides optimum playability with a bright, modern tone
  • Rich acoustic sound
  • Works with magnetic and piezo pickup systems

Developed by NS Design in partnership with D'Addario, this set provides regular 5 string bass tuning (G-D-A-E-B) and is designed to fit all NS 5 string upright basses, as well as those with standard playing lengths, but shorter overall lengths (no tailpiece).
