Jargar Upright Bass Strings

Jargar (Yar-gar) is pretty well known for Cello strings, but they've also been making bass strings for years.  They're well made and of consistent quality.  The Jargars are  responsive strings, but tend to have tad bit brighter tone. Not an edgy (offensive) bright, but the kind of bright that soloists prefer on their basses.  It makes the tone pop out a bit more on the higher end.  Again....depends on the bass and the player's preferences.  They're cheap enough to try!  (A nice alternative to Helicore Orchestra or the Helicore Hybrids.)

We now offer all gauges: Medium, Light (Dolce), and Heavy (Forte).  Also, for those needing the long E  (C extension) strings, we now offer these.  Interesting note from Jargar: While they do offer Dolce or lightweight gauge, these can also be used as solo strings, tuned up in pitch.  We've never tried the Dolce gauge as Solo strings, but it would be interesting to try! 

Also, the Dolce gauge should make for a lower tension string for those looking to give their left hand a break. (Some other players, with hand issues, also buy solo strings (like Spirocore Solo gauge) and tune them at concert pitch (EADG).
