D’Addario Zyex Double Bass Strings are made with a Zyex core that produces a warm, rich tone that doesn’t sound synthetic. Zyex is a new generation of synthetic material that is extremely stable under drastic climactic conditions. Combined with power and clarity for both pizzicato and bowing, D’Addario Zyex Double Bass Strings were developed primarily to offer outstanding pizzicato attacks and sustain. All DAddario strings are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA. Sets are 3/4 size, standard tuning.
D’Addario Zyex Double Bass Strings are available in two gauges, which allows for good performance across many playing styles. PLEASE MAKE YOUR SELECTION IN THE CUSTOMIZATION TAB ABOVE BEFORE ADDING THE ITEM TO YOUR CART:
- Light Tension: allows for easier bow response
- Medium Tension: optimized for a majority of players
Gary’s Thoughts: In a jazz or pizzicato setting, D’Addario Zyex Double Bass Strings are comparable to Thomastik Spirocore, although a touch darker fresh out of the box. Under the bow, the Zyex seem a bit more responsive. A good crossover string for the price, and I like that they’re made in America. Medium tension is recommended for most players, but if you are unsure which tension is for you, please contact us.

- Great value for a hybrid set
