Light and responsive, with singing highs and a remarkably deep low register, these low-tension strings are effortless to play. They have a rich pizzicato growl that can be made to sound very much like an acoustic upright, yet they can deliver plenty of sustain and drive when you need it.

At 34 inches, the Omni Bass scale length is exactly the same as the standard bass guitar, allowing these strings to fit most bass guitars as well.
