The GarboŽ gut string sound is unbeatable in volume and penetration. Garbo is the choice for the jazz bass players.
All Velvet silk, gut, or synthetic core strings are wound to minimize the irritating effects of hand perspiration on the core. The winding also provides tone and pitch stability, so it's possible to produce a balanced, solid sound with a clearly audible attack.
- Velvet Garbo G string is wound with the finest polyamide, but can be played like an unwound gut string.
- Velvet Garbo D string is spun with a polyamide/copper composite, solving
the known problem of a slack and soft D gut string without sustain.
- Velvet Garbo A & E strings are wound with copper, but with a higher proportion of gut than Anima. Extra gut material combined with the copper winding provides an especially distinctive low fundamental. You get more percussive "punch" from the bottom two strings.
