Description

Solo Bass 55 Rotosound Bass String Set

Another first designed in 1977 by James How is the stainless steel bass string with his patented linea pressure-wound finish.

This type of string has some distinct advantages over a normal conventional roundwound.  They have a distinctly smooth feel, ideal for a fretless bass.  Finger noise is reduced and hence overall wear, with increased longivity.

Once the string is wound a rolling technique is applied under pressure which displaces the crown of each winding producing a flat that reduces finger noise and friction thus allowing for more rapid finger movement.

The linea effect accentuates the middle frequencies resulting in a tone quite different from a normal round-wound string.

Great for studio work or where tackling quieter musicla passages
