Bass String, Tunes to E...
Belcanto bass strings are
specially formulated for bowing. They
are an all steel string made to very tight specifications with excellent quality
control. Arco Bass Players enjoy bowing Belcanto Bass because of their easy
start, strong projection, and clarity of tone. From the makers of Spirocore
Bass, Belcanto is available in Orchestra Tuning (G-D-A-E), and in Solo Tuning
(A-E-B-F#). Lemur Bass Music stocks all the extension fourth strings, and 5th
strings in each Belcanto Bass String Brand. Made in Austria.
Belcanto upright bass
is made with a specially twisted steel rope core that's known to settle in quickly,
so you get the orchestra response you need right away with little wait time
while the strings 'settle down.' They are known for their even response and
exceptional tuning stability. These bass strings produce a dark, warm tone that
is complex and easy to blend into the section. Like their pizzicato cousins,
Spirocore Bass, Belcanto Bass has good projection, so there is less need to
overplay just to be heard.
Some of our jazz bass
player clients have told us they like Belcanto for pizzicato jazz work, too.
They say that there is enough sustain, quick response, and strong projection
to make Belcanto work well as a hybrid bass string also. Lemur's Luthiers like
the way Belcanto brings out the more complex tones of our Sunrise Basses, making
even entry level basses sound and play their best.
Thanks, Thomastik-Infeld. We really enjoy representing
your first class upright bass strings.
