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.
