New Dunlop Heavy Core and Tapered B Bass String Sets

EditorGeneral News, Jim Dunlop

Some interesting new strings from Dunlop Strings, for bass players playing outside the 4 string, standard tuning norm:

Heavy Core Bass Strings

Tune down and dig in with these Heavy Core Bass Strings. Dunlop have created a set of strings that bass players can down tune without needing to modify their instrument or playing style. They didn’t just make bigger strings- the time was taken to develop specific core- to-wrap ratios that deliver the optimal balance of tone and tension. Heavy Core Bass strings maintain a natural feel while providing punchy lows, articulate mids and crunchy highs when tuned below E standard.


Tapered B Bass strings

A classic set of Dunlop 5 string bass strings, but featuring a tapered b string which not only provides higher tension for more focus and sustain, but also helps tuning and more accurate intonation.

We will have both these sets and many more available at the London Bass Guitar Show on March 2nd and 3rd

About Dunlop Bass Strings:

Bass players demand consistency, durability and versatility from their strings. Dunlop delivers. Dunlop Bass Strings offer traditionalists, slappers and pick wielding rockers cutting midrange, wide bottom end and a growl that will cut through any band.

Carefully selected core-to-wrap ratios yield low tension strings with an extremely long life and minimal break in time. Each set is exceptionally well balanced string to string, and provides an amazing amount of dynamic range.
