NS Electric Omni Cello-Bass by D'Addario
Light and responsive, with singing highs and a remarkably deep low register, these low-tension strings are effortless to play. The polished finish, smooth and fast to the touch, minimizes unwanted finger noise, allowing the player to concentrate on expression rather than technique. They have a rich pizzicato growl that can be made to sound very much like an acoustic upright, yet they can deliver plenty of sustain and drive when you need it. These same strings, custom made by D'Addario, are perfectly adapted for bowing. They respond much quicker to the bow than traditional bass strings, so expressive bow technique is easier to develop and maintain.

Zyex by D'Addario
Zyex Bass Strings use a composite synthetic Zyex core that provides gut-like rich and complex tone combined with power and clarity for both pizzicato and bowing. Pitch stability is excellent after minimal break-in time. Zyex bass strings were developed primarily to offer outstanding pizzicato attacks and sustain as well as superb bowing response. Get the sound and feel of gut strings with more evenness, projection and stability than real gut. Zyex is a new generation of synthetic material creating strings that are extremely stable under drastic climatic conditions.

All strings are composite synthetic core with the windings listed below.
