Double Bass Strings – Jazz, Classical, Roots and Rockabilly, Upton Bass is current with every brand and style of the finest bass strings available and we’ve played them all!
We’re familiar with and stock every style of double bass string. We stock bright pizzicato Jazz favorites – the stalwart Thomastik Spirocore or excellent new D’Addario Zyex – warmer popular hybrids such as the Pirastro Evah Pirazzi family or fully gut arco Classical contrabass string sets such as the Pirastro Eudoxa.
Our own Clef Gut Upright Bass Strings (fully gut) or Clef Gut Jazz Bass Strings (wound E & A) are an amazing value in gut upright bass strings and favorites with Baroque, Roots, Rockabilly and early Jazz players. We stock and know well the whole line of sublime Velvet Double Bass Strings.
We’re well-versed in solo double bass string sets (or higher), building double bass C-extension string sets (or lower), custom sizing and even developing cross-brand solutions, such as our popular “Gary’s Blended” Set, combining the Spirocore low end and Obligato top.
Bottom line, if a new bass string comes along, we’ve tried it first, installed it first, and gigged with it first!
