2 week old Set of Kaplans for sale

Discussion in 'For Sale: Double Bass Amps, Strings, & Accessories' started by Ben Mitchell, Dec 29, 2013.

  1. Hello all,

    I have a set of daddario Kaplans that I put on my bass to try and didn't like them personally, so I switched back to Belcantos after 2 weeks. I'd like to get 115 shipped for them. It's the medium tension set.

    I might be interested in buying these strings from you. I tried to pm you about them but your pm mailbox is full and won't accept new messages until you clear some out. What made you return to Belcantos after trying the Kaplans? How do the two sets compare?
  8. I think just the overall feel. The tension is different if I remember correctly, the Kaplan's being less tension? I may be incorrect about that it might be the other way around. The Kaplan set, on my bass, caused a little of the bassiness to go away. But I've heard other people's basses sound even more strong and thick in the low end with them on. So it's hard to say. I think the Belcantos air on the warm side. The two sets were made to be very similar though. D'addario actually made them to combat the Belcanto from Thomistik-Infield, since it's such a popular string.

    Sorry about my inbox! Didn't even think about that. It's clear now.
