ROTOSOUND JAZZ BASS 77

JAZZ BASS 77 5-STRING STANDARD | 45-130

LONG SCALE 810mm 860mm | 32" 34"

The 'Monel 'flatwound bass string that's been awarded many accolades since its inception in 1966. Wound with the premium alloy Monel, Jazz Bass strings sound deeper and offer more resistance than the more commonly used stainless steel wrap.

The RS77 Jazz Bass set has found favour with so many of the worlds top leading artists including the likes of Oasis, Steve Harris, Roger Waters and Herbie Flowers.

The build spec remains a close kept secret but the Monel 400 tape used in the strings making brings out the true character of these strings over the competition who are happy to use the much less costly flattened stainless steel.

These strings are still manufactured the "old fashioned way" by hand on machines that James How built at the end of the 1960's.

Flatwound. Monel. One of the original Rotosound sets from the early 1960s. These strings can be heard on many famous albums, used over the years by Sting, Phil Lynott, Steve Harris, and John Deacon. Rotosound makes the world's most famous and highest-quality electric bass strings. Outstanding brilliance and superb tone. Long scale.

Great tone, superb feel!
May 29, 2013
I was looking for a new sets of flats for my Gretsch G5440 Hollow bass and decided to try those out mostly because of the overall good reviews I read. I have to admit I was a little bit disappointed when I tried them for the first time. The set felt not very well balanced and the resulting tone was uneven but after just a couple of hours of playing, everything came in to place and now they sound just like I was hopping it would. So if you go with the Rotosound Jazz 77, play them for a while and be patient, they will reward you with even and oh sooo smooth tone and feel! Worth noting is the fact that those strings have a little bit less output volume compared to standard roundwounds, but not so much that it's a problem. Just turn up the amp!

Thanks for reading!
Pros
  • Smooth feel and tone
Cons
  • None so far!
