|This set with the extended E string. |
This is the newest set from Velvet. The original Compas 180's have a lower tension and are suitable for orchestral and solo tuning. This set is of a higher tension for orchestral tuning only.
Similar to the Compās 360Ū, but designed as a string for orchestral instruments only. All four strings are metal wound.
Compās is built around a core using natural fibres, and is distinctive in its extremely rapid response and perfect balance, in both pizzicato and bowing. It has depth, and thanks to the round string winding, offers an open harmonic range.
Perfect definition and audibility in all registers, for practically all applications and every style. When used in conjunction with electro-acoustic transducers, they produce a truly amazing sound totality. All four strings are metal wound.
