"A highly flexible steel core gives the string a balanced feeling and a special character. The overall sound characteristics can be described as very close to the double bass." - Thomastik-Infeld
Thomastik-Infeld JR344 Jazz Nickel Round Wound Bass Guitar Strings offer a smooth, warm, and balanced tone with a round wound feel that gives it a slight edge compared to it's flat wound brother. The small diameter nickel wrap wire around the round core adds a slight bite to the upright style, without the squeak and excessive fret wear common to round wound strings.
Designed with a lower tension and gauging increases playbility, while reducing strain on the instrument's neck without sacrificing output.
