As string makers, the first question we at PIRASTRO are usually asked when we introduce a new set of double bass strings is what style of playing are they most suitable for? With our new PERPETUAL double bass set, we would like to encourage the players to decide for themselves.
Mainly developed for pizzicato, the new PERPETUAL double bass strings were designed to provide the player with a comfortable left hand feel, fast articulate response, and strong energetic tone. Using a new uniquely designed extremely flexible steel rope core, the PERPETUAL double bass strings provide incredible stability and tremendous power. With a little adjustment on the players end, the voice can be manipulated to suit a wide variety of styles. A powerful and focused low end gives way to a full, sophisticated upper register.
When played arco the PERPETUAL double bass has a clear yet complex tone with an intense power that can be felt by the musician as well as the listener. With their effortless left hand feel and an astonishingly quick bow response, the PERPETUAL allows the player to practice for long periods of time with little fatigue.
In closing, at PIRASTRO we know very well that no individual double bass set is suited to fit every player and every style of music but cordially invite you to discover the PERPETUAL possibilities of this unique 21st century string set.
PIRASTRO PERPETUAL strings for double bass are available in an orchestra tuning medium gauge set and are available at all retailers selling PIRASTRO products. Additionally an E 2.10m (C-extension) and B5 strings are available separately.
