Bel Canto rope core bass strings by Thomastik are one of the most popular orchestral strings worldwide, offering very rapid break-in, pleasing tone color, medium string tension, extremely clean articulation and string crossings, very good response, and really excellent solo-tuning strings. Bel Canto strings work well on intermediate-level basses up to fine instruments, and sound best on instruments that are already good-sounding - in other words, they don't change the sound of the instrument by very much, though they can make it easier to play with a nice sound.
*This is a solo string, so it is the second string (D) to be tuned up to an “E”. *
