D'Addario NS Electric Double Bass Strings

Living on the dark side doesn't necessarily mean you belong to a satanic cult. It just means the tonal color of your electric double bass is less bright than similar instruments.

But whichever side of the dark/bright line you live on, D'Addario has strings that will perfectly complement your instrument's natural tonal color:
  • The NS Electric Traditional Bass set is constructed like acoustic bass strings, producing a warm tone and excellent bow response
  • The NS Electric Contemporary Bass set offers a brighter sound and lower tension than the Traditonal set
D'Addario created these strings in partnership with Ned Steinberger, the legendary designer of bowed electric string instruments. They're made specifically for electric double basses designed by Steinberger, but work on other instruments as well.

D'Addario strings are made in the USA.
