Gary’s Thoughts: Thomastik SuperFlexible Double Bass Strings are a lower cost alternative to Spirocores. As the manufacturer states, these are a very durable string; however in my mind they are much more of a jazz string than a classical string. Despite being largely overlooked by Thomastik, SuperFlexible Double Bass Strings have a sound that many a player will enjoy the sustain and growl of.
- Universal-use string for arco and pizz

- Dependable all-around string
