Strunal Strings?

  1. Hello all,

    Anyone tried Strunal strings before? I went to a shop yesterday and they had
    a pack of these Czech strings with a very low price. They look like any
    other double bass steel strings (flats) in the package (as far as I could
    tell). I'd greatly appreciate any info.

    My Strunal bass came with Strunal strings.

    They are marginal. I'm still playing them (its been 3 months now). They sound like Spirocore Weichs but with a slightly thinner sound and growl. They are terrible for bowing. Very, very scratchy.

    I will be replacing them with Spirocre Weichs soon, but I'll keep the used Strunals in my bass bag for back-up in case one of my strings break.

    Just wondering, what is the cost of these strings new in $US?

    Just an update.

    I replaced my stock Strunal strings that came with my Strunal bass with a set of Pirastro Flex Chromesteels (thanks Andy) and it completely changed the sound of my instrument.

    They sound a little like Spirocore Weichs but on steriods. Arco sound improved also.

    So if you can afford better strings, don't buy the Strunals.

    I bought mine slightly used on this site for a little more than what you said new Strunals cost.

    Good Luck
