Slap Happy Weedwacker Nylon Upright Double Bass Strings:
SLAP HAPPY WEEDWACKERS
This is our standard low-tension set. High strength aramid (kevlar) core with a smooth dual-polymer nylon exterior.
Slap Happy Weedwackers provide the sound and feel of natural gut strings without the drawbacks.Cost- Our strings cost less than 1/10th the price of a natural gut set.Stability- Our synthetic material holds pitch under varying climate conditions much better than natural gut, which expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity. Lifespan- A typical gut set lasts 6-12 months. Our synthetic strings are guaranteed never to fray or break. One set will last a lifetime!E- .170
G- .095Our strings are featured on several displays at the National Guitar Museum in Fairfield what our customers are saying-Now a quick comment on the sound... They are surprisingly warm, mellow sounding strings... and yes you can hear the gut sound, particularly in the upper register during slides. And they bow superbly, I will never go back to alloy. - member onescorpThe overall response of these strings is much better than I've encountered with other wacker type strings... The G is quick and the response is warm, defined with very good articulation... The attack is thick like a gut but a bit more defined.
That being said the overall balance of the strings in terms of string to string and overall amplitude is quite remarkable. Playing pizz was a very satisfying experience...
What a delightful response these strings have to the bow with no prep work on the string at all! These impart a sweetness that is reminiscent of "early music"...
...you have succeeded very handily.
I would definitely recommend your strings over the other "wackers" out there without hesitation as they have proven to be the most musical sounding I've encountered in this class. I believe that these strings could actually give a new lease on life on semi-retired basses as the ratio of tension and response is quite good. - member Gus Wanner
I love these strings! I play all kinds of jazz and they come quite close to gut or older mariachi basses! I want to order 2 more sets- keep up the good work. These strings are not just for slapping- and to be honest- I think they are way too cheap! Thank you very much. All the best. - member bassklepflerJust a quick note to let you know I got my strings today. I strung them up and-WOW!!! They sound really good!! If I really dig in and snap these strings, they are very responsive, even the E!!! Thanx for going above and beyond!!! Your strings get an endorsement from me anytime I can give one!!! - member pthebassthumperI bought some strings a week or so ago and i just wanted you to know they are the BEST thing EVER!!! I can not believe the sound! Its like butter ~THANK YOU and expect to get more in future for my other bass. - member mrwilson13
I Love the Slap Happy high tension strings I received. The D rings like a bell with sustain till Tuesday, the G is nice and loud. The E and A are louder than the metal strings that came with the bass. I was worried that the "gut tone" color would look too yellow but they look GREAT!
Just thought you would like to know. - member farkle30
They come long enough to fit a 4/4 and can easily be trimmed to fit any smaller size.
These strings produce a rich, warm tone with a nice percussive click. They sound great acoustic or amplified and work well with the bow with no prep work to the strings.
They're not just for slapping. They work great for any style of upright bass including jazz, classical, bluegrass, gospel, country, etc.This sale is for a full set of four strings in your choice of color. If no color is indicated you will receive a clear set.Choose from clear, natural gut, orange, red, blue, purple, green, pink, brown or black. ***** Mix 'n' match any of our colors to create your own custom set!!! *****Please indicate desired color in "notes" section at checkout.
