D’Addario: Kaplan Double Bass Strings


D’Addario Kaplan Orchestral Double Bass strings are a budget friendly orchestral set that is responsive to the bow. Warm, complex sound with clarity.


D’Addario Kaplan Orchestral Double Bass Strings offer a warm and complex sound with superb bowing response in a beautifully balanced set. These Kaplan strings provide the player with excellent clarity from low to high registers and allow versatility and predictable control throughout the dynamic spectrum. Constructed of stranded steel core, G titanium wrapped, D & A Nickel wrapped, E Tungsten wrapped. All DAddario strings are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA.

Gary’s Thoughts: Kaplan Orchestral Double Bass strings are a nice budget friendly orchestral set that is responsive to the bow. In my mind, it lives in the same family as Pirastro’s Evah Pirazzi.
