The 'Black Nylon Trubass' string was originally developed for the Burn's Black Bison Bass. Great Strings to simulate a double bass sound on an standard bass guitar. These strings have made the most famous appearance on the top of the 'Apple' building while Paul McCartney was playing his Hofner. You will note that the tension is low, making this string extremely comfortable to play and the heavier gauge is due to anything lighter and the strings themselves would start to flap.
A string that was specifically designed by James How for Jim Burns’s famous Black Bison in 1962.
This string emulates the upright bass sound and the nearest you will ever get to a double bass that can be played as an electric bass.
The magnetic stainless steel undercovers that sit below the special black nylon tape ensures the best of both worlds by having a bass that is comfortable to handle, that will work with a conventional amplifier and yet offer a sound so reminiscent of its much larger brother.
Having recently celebrated 50 years of producing the worlds finest music strings, we at Rotosound proudly offer our nickel on steel electrics in a wide range of gauges for 6, 7, 8 and 12 string sets to suit all playing styles and the needs of todays musician.
Our highly secret core to cover ratios used in their making offers such brilliant sustain and tonal nuances few others can equal. The longer European eye adds extra strength at the ballend.
Our unsurpassed quality and constant care to detail throughout every stage of the production process culminates in a string equally geared to the professional and non-professional alike.
