Cost- Our strings cost less than 1/10th the price of a natural gut set. Stability- Our synthetic material holds pitch under varying climate conditions much better than natural gut, which expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity. Lifespan- A typical gut set lasts 6-12 months. Our synthetic strings are guaranteed never to fray or break. One set will last a lifetime! FAST FREE SHIPPING! US shipping is FREE on up to 3 sets. International shipping is $7.99. Orders ship within 24 hours! See what our customers are saying- Now a quick comment on the sound… They are surprisingly warm, mellow sounding strings… and yes you can hear the gut sound, particularly in the upper register during slides. And they bow superbly, I will never go back to alloy. The overall response of these strings is much better than I’ve encountered with other wacker type strings… The G is quick and the response is warm, defined with very good articulation… The attack is thick like a gut but a bit more defined. That being said the overall balance of the strings in terms of string to string and overall amplitude is quite remarkable. Playing pizz was a very satisfying experience… What a delightful response these strings have to the bow with no prep work on the string at all! These impart a sweetness that is reminiscent of “early music”… …you have succeeded very handily.I would definitely recommend your strings over the other “wackers” out there without hesitation as they have proven to be the most musical sounding I’ve encountered in this class. I believe that these strings could actually give a new lease on life on semi-retired basses as the ratio of tension and response is quite good. I love these strings! I play all kinds of jazz and they come quite close to gut or older mariachi basses! I want to order 2 more sets- keep up the good work. These strings are not just for slapping- and to be honest- I think they are way too cheap! Thank you very much. All the best. Just a quick note to let you know I got my strings today. I strung them up and-WOW!!! They sound really good!! If I really dig in and snap these strings, they are very responsive, even the E!!! Thanx for going above and beyond!!! Your strings get an endorsement from me anytime I can give one!!! I bought some strings a week or so ago and i just wanted you to know they are the BEST thing EVER!!! I can not believe the sound! Its like butter ~THANK YOU and expect to get more in future for my other bass. I Love the Slap Happy high tension strings I received. The D rings like a bell with sustain till Tuesday, the G is nice and loud. The E and A are louder than the metal strings that came with the bass. I was worried that the “gut tone” color would look too yellow but they look GREAT! Just thought you would like to know. I have the light gauge strings on all of my basses. Your strings hold tune on the road and in a non air conditioned van in Florida. We are a road band and my basses and strings take a beating. I have been asked what strings I am using and other bass players are amazed when I tell what they are and how little I paid for them compared to other strings ranging in the hundreds of dollars. Amazing product. keep up the good work. Paypal is the preferred method of payment. US shipping is FREE on up to 3 sets. International shipping is $7.99 + $3-4 per additional set based on location.
