Velvet upright bass strings

We now sell the popular the Compas 180 strings, Velvet Compass Blue, Velvet Anima and Velvet Garbo (including the long Velvet E strings for C extension use.) We also offer their tailpiece cords: See these in our upright bass accessories page.

Velvet (Switzerland) make great strings and are more geared towards Jazz style (plucking), Bluegrass or folk style music.  We recently added the new, pure gut Garbo G strings to our selection.

Below, you will find every string Velvet offers.  We also package together complete sets that include a C extension string.  We do this so that players needing these can simply order it all together in a packaged set and save significantly. 

About G string Garbos.  Velvet offers two Garbo G strings: One is pure gut and the other a synthetic G. Which one to buy?  Our customers mainly order the synthetic G, but some players really love the gut G.  If you have a bass with a really bright (twangy) G, the gut will usually temper it down a little.  We offer them individually and also offer sets (to save money) , as either a packaged set with either G string.  We also make up sets the C extension included (saving $).

We are proud to offer the best prices here.  Everything here is in stock!
