Good balanced string for varied playing

Sam4613, 13.10.2014
Having taken up the double bass after 30 years of electric I wasn't entirely sure which way I'd eventually go - orchestral playing, slap, jazz, folk etc etc. What I decided I wanted was a string set that would give me a balanced performance across the range of styles so that I could make progress in all options before opting for one style.

I would say the result has been very successful in all the areas I had a right to expect a result. What I mean is that, as I'd rather gathered from readings lots of reviews, these strings give a solid workmanlike performance across a range of genres. Although new to bowing, I'm able to produce full sonorous tones (on the good days!) and when proper players have borrowed the bass or my teacher demonstrates something to me using my bass, I realise the richness that these strings are capable of producing in the right fingers.

The strings are quite forgiving to a new player's hands and I haven't created any callouses or sore spots. That said, they clearly aren't just beginner's strings because, as I say, real players make my bass sound great with them.

The one area I have had less success is in slap. I know they are not "proper" slap strings, but a few videos on the internet show what can be done with them for slap. However, I'm guessing that those players probably didn't learn rockabilly on these strings, even if they subsequently like the sound they produce for a skilled slap player, and I've given up that idea until I either restring the bass with something else entirely or get a dedicated rockabilly bass.

All in all I've felt these strings have worked with me, allowing me to learn to play the instrument and fitting a wide variety of genres. They came properly boxed and packaged and in secure outer packaging. All in all I've been thoroughly pleased and would certainly buy again.

Probably the best ones around.

30.06.2016
Bought Two of these strings, one as a gift for a great Friend of mine who lives in Brazil, where those strings are very expensive, and one for his teacher who recommended it.

My Friend just got himself a second hand double bass and he is learning to play upright. This review is on his behalf, based on his feedback.

He cannot stop praising these strings: " they are a lot softer clearer and brighter, comparing to the ones that came in the bass. "

He claims it is "THE string for upright , for its growl, sustain, and brightness. "

Teachers comments:

"If you are primarily a pizzicato player , beginner or experienced" and want to get that clear jazz sound, the Spirocores are the way to go, and will enhance the sound of your bass"

"They are easy to Use, great Quality, Improves Sound
and will Last you for Years"

Needless to say that Thomann's service was amazing and I received the products in perfect condition in no time. They had the best price on those at the time as well.

Thank you so much , my Friends in Brazil are very happy
