D'Addario NS610 NS Electric Traditional Bass Set is one of the family of a totally new concept in electric double bass strings. D'Addario NS610 electric traditional bass set were conceived jointly with Ned Steinberger and D'Addario. NS610 NS Electric line offers rich tone and expressive nuance, bringing out the fullest tone from any electric instrument. NS Electric strings can even work well for acoustic instruments when seeking subtlety of expression.
NS strings are mostly made with stranded steel cores wrapped with aluminium, brass, tungsten, nickel and stainless steel. The strings are available for:
- Standard electric bowed instruments (violin, viola, and cello)
- Electric upright basses using NS Standard Double Bass string length
- Any standard bass guitar and NS Omni Bass, to provide a warm, upright bass sound.
The Traditional Double Bass set is constructed and tensioned similarly to acoustic bass strings, for a warm tone, feel, and great bowed response. The set includes regular double bass tuning strings (G, D, A, E). Additional 5th and 6th strings, a low B and a high C, are available as singles.
