Bass PASSIONE is a modern and reliable steel core string suitable for the demanding bassist. The core material is made from a high-tensile and very flexible steel rope that is extremely stable and responsive. The set is extremely well balanced for both tension and sound.
Tone: The core sound is full, round and warm with a complex overtone spectrum which results in a deep and noble sound with great projection and power. The sustain characteristics of the string allow a strong, big and warm pizzicato
Playability: The response is incredibly easy and flexible, the notes are separate and distinctively clean when played in fast passages. The strings vibrate freely and easily with no need for excess bow pressure.
Stability: Passione bass strings provide exceptional tuning stability.
Available for soprano and baritone ukulele. All soprano ukulele strings are made with clear nylon. Baritone strings have clear nylon trebles, aluminum wound on nylon 3rd string and silver plated wound on nylon 4th string.
