Rotosound Trubass Tapewound SHORTSCALE
April 10, 2020
These are installed on a Gretsch short scale. They have a great smooth feel, tension with balanced volume and warm sound. They don't rattle with loose tension like most shortscale strings. I'm just sorry I didn't try the Rotosound Trubass decades ago. I finally ordered them from Strings and Beyond and l will be ordering more for my other basses. As far as Rotosounds claim to emulate an upright l will say they give you a rich warm sound usable in a lot of musical styles. When installing these strings you may have to widen the nut slots so the strings will not bind and allow them to sit correctly. Very, very comfortable strings to play. Thanks again to Strings and Beyond.

great on my Warwick Rock Bass Corvette Medium Scale
April 3, 2016
I wanted a deeper sound from my medium scale bass. Something with a growl like a Rick 4001. So far, this is the closest thing to it on a much less expensive bass for someone who doesn't have long fingers.

I bought the medium scale version of these here at Strings and Beyond which I had to special order which was so easy!

They sound simply awesome.
  • great growly deep tone
  • none that I can hear yet!

These strings have added an extra edge to my Hofner Icon Bass. Next to the Icon; these were the best investment that I made! Great feel and gives you that Beatle feel!

Rotosound RS88LD

These strings have an absolutely beautiful dark, mellow sound. They sound great on my acoustic bass and allow my fingers to glide across the strings, considering they are nylon flatwounds. The strings can be most famously heard on "Come Together" by The Beatles, for which I believe Paul McCartney used a fretted Rickenbacker 4001. I would recommend these strings to anyone who wants to reduce fret noise and create a somber tone to their music. Plus, these strings a black, which provides an aesthetically pleasing alternative to the shining stainless steel on most other strings.
