Double Bass Strings

Question: If a double bass is sometimes called a doghouse, shouldn't a cello be called a cathouse?

Whatever you call that giant stringed instrument — double bass, string bass, acoustic bass, upright bass, bass fiddle, bass violin, bull fiddle, or doghouse — it needs great strings. And we've got'em.

They come from acclaimed manufacturers like D'Addario, La Bella, Pirastro, and Thomastik-Infeld. We offer sets from all four companies, and single strings from D'Addario.
