Description

Pirastro Oliv Double Bass Strings are the premier gut core string. Constructed of a sheep gut core, these handmade gut strings are wound with polished chrome steel. Pirastro Oliv Double Bass Strings offer thick pizzicato sound and easy bowing. They can withstand a heavy bow arm and have a big tone volume. The sound is dark and powerful; similar to but darker than Chorda’s.

 

Gary’s Thoughts: Jazz players using Pirastro Oliv Double Bass Strings will often use the Oliv G and D string with an A and E string from another set.

 

Highlights:

 

  • Finely wound and polished handmade gut strings
  • Suitable for arco and pizzicato
  • Dark and powerful sound
