Double Bass Strings: D'Addario Helicore Orchestral + 2 other sets

Post by basshead56 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 4:57 pm

For sale- 3 sets of double bass strings.

First is a set of D'Addario Helicore Orchestral strings. These are the medium tension set. Steel.
beautiful deep low end and plenty of top end snap. a great all rounder for both pizz and Arco playing.
They have been opened, tried on my bass for 40 mins and taken off again. I prefer lower tension gut strings now as years of slapping and sloppy playing style have made my fingers soft.
These cost over $300 new (prices still on pack).

I will also include two other sets of strings.
The first I believe are rotosound that came on an electric upright I bought a few years ago but never used. literally never. it's still in its case. I have replaced the strings this week with synthetics.

Third is a set of what I also believe to be D'Addario but I'm not 100% These are old and have been played, but plenty of life left in them so would make good spares or a beater set.

Anyway, the clear out continues and whoever buys these will be getting a bloody good bargain no matter what.
Can deliver within Southland/Otago or post at cost (about $8.50 tracked)

180 for the lot.
