Opinions on VELVET strings?

Discussion in 'Strings [DB]' started by Infidelic83, Jan 2, 2013.

  1. During my search for proper gut strings for a recording session, I came across VELVET strings from Switzerland. I researched them a bit, and was hoping to get some opinions as to their control and playability from anyone who is familiar with them... http://www.uptonbass.com/anima-double-bass-velvet-upright-bass-strings/
    The recording session will be an old school one with no headphones, one microphone, onto a reel-to-reel. So the quality of my strings and bass needs to be powerful, yet well controlled. If anyone has a suggestion on a different brand or type, I would love to hear it! Thank you

    The first 53 pages of Velvet Megathread. The earliest posts are from 12 or 13 years ago, so unless you're interested in a full historical perspective it would make sense to skim that one and maybe some of the next set of pages. We're now quite a few pages into Velvet Megathread III.
