Presto Nylonwound Double Bass - Dark and mellow sound, but big tone with a strong sustain. Despite the low tension they are very loud. Ideally suited for pizzicato and slapping techniques, excellent choice for Jazz, Rockabilly or Bluegrass bass players. Compared to other steel strings, Presto Nylonwound strings are of very low tension and are very easy to play. The thicker gauges and the smooth Nylon-surface result in a very pleasant playing feel.

The strings have a core of braided steel rope, wrapped with silk and metal wires. Finally, they are wound in a white-translucent polyamid monofil (nylon tape), and polished to a flat, smooth surface. Presto Nylonwound strings combine the unique sound of natural gut strings with the convinient properties of steel rope core strings. They stay in tune under temperature and humidity changes and also have a short break-in time.

For bowing, it is recommended to roughen the bowing area with fine sandpaper, and to apply rosin directly on the strings. If strings of thinner gauges were used before, some setup work may be necessary at the saddle and bridge string notches.Due to their steel rope core, Presto Nylonwound-strings also work well with magnetic pickups.
