Lenzner 'Supersolo' (Gut) Double Bass Strings
Lenzner upright bass strings are made in Germany
and actually make other gut strings for the more well known string
brands. These are top quality gut, upright bass strings
without having to pay the highest prices on the planet!
Whether you are after the 'original' sound of the early jazz players
(like Paul Chambers, Oscar Pettiford, etc...) or a serious
Rockabilly player, these are the some of the finest gut bass
Lenzner calls their brand of guts, "Supersolos" but
these are not actual solo strings (where the G string
would actually sound an 'A' in pitch). The Solo connotation is
only just part of their brand name.
Other good gut strings that we offer here are the
Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Slaps and the Red Diamond Guts by Gamut.
Each brands have their own style: You can get pure gut strings
here (without any wrappying on the D or G) with the Lenzners. The
Red Diamonds have nylon wrapped D and G strings.
With the rising popularity of these strings, we have a little
added page to read about before installing these that will hopefully
help any premature breakage issues between the nut and tuning peg.
Just a slightly wider nut groove and rubbing a pencil tip in the nut
and bridge groove will go a long way. See the
gut bass strings page.
