PASSIONE – BREAK NEW GROUNDS:
Free your arco playing.
Impress your audience with your sound!

While developing the Passione for the orchestra bassist we have not made any compromises in the construction of the string in order to offer optimal sound and playability characteristics. The result is a set of double bass strings which offers outstanding arco playability and an inspiring diversity of sounds. It allows the bassist to use all possible bow strokes to create the desired sound.

The core sound is full, round and warm and has a complex overtone spectrum which results in a deep and noble sound with great projection and power.

The sustain characteristics of the string allow a strong, big and warm pizzicato – Bass PASSIONE is a modern and very reliable steel core string suitable for the ambitious bassist.

The response is incredibly easy and flexible. The notes are separate and distinctively clean when played in fast passages. No matter whether playing Spiccato or Legato, the sound can be altered as desired not depending on the bowing speed.

The big advantage of the Passione strings is that the sound does not need to be developed by using excess bow pressure as the strings vibrate freely and easily. The set is extremely well-balanced concerning tension and sound. Immediate playability and exceptional tuning stability are important additional advantages which offer great comfort to the bassist.
