Thomastik Spirocore & Belcanto Upright Bass Strings

Also offering the Dominants and Superflexibles. Thomastik is another great, upright bass string manufacturer. The most famous two strings they make are Spirocore and Belcanto bass. Additionally, they make and offer the Superflexible and Dominant brands.

Spirocore upright bass strings are the #1 ordered jazz string in the world. They are not just slightly favored, but more of a huge preference with jazz bass players. In addition, their Spirocore E strings are often found on many orchestra basses because the Spirocore E has an incredible kick in the lower registers. Often the E strings in many upright bass sets can sound a little sluggish compared to rest of the set. It's just the nature of the instrument really, but if the bass isn't already too bright, the medium Spirocore E strings offer a nice punch and responsive that sometimes might not be as attainable otherwise.

The Belcanto bass strings are popular too. These are more orchestra strings than anything else. They are not really a hybrid string (like the Eva Pirazzi strings.) The Belcanto upright strings fall into the Pirastro Flexocor, Deluxe Flexocor and Original Flexocor class of bass strings. It you could try a set of Belcantos and then a set of the Pirastro Original Flexocors they would play and sound very close to each other. The real deciding factor simply, is the bass itself. As just about every bass is different, so does the response and reaction of these two strings. Only trying them will tell!

The Belcantos have a little 'pop' at the beginning of the note that some notice more than the Flexocors. The Flexcor Originals though might sway you the the slightly more warmer tone. Both are really good strings and only trying the actual string in comparison will tell in the end.

The Dominants are often compared to Evah Pirazzi type of synthetic string class. They can work for both genres (jazz or classical).
