Michael Manring Strings
August 11, 2020
This is what Michael Manring uses on his ZON HYPER BASS, great for altered tunings, and tapping solo's
Pros
  • super light, capable of multiple tunings,
Cons
  • Takes some getting used to being that they are so light, and the G is unwound. but it works

Rich sound. Good price! Got them installed on two Fender T-Bucket 30" scale acoustic basses.
Pros
  • Upper register lets you explore new sonic landscapes and grow as a musician.
  • Loud enough to let you play acoustic unamplified.
  • "That's a bass?" conversation starter.
Cons
  • Not available at my local music store!

Great strings for short scale

I used these piccolo bass strings on my short scale acoustic bass. Bright sound, sounds almost like a baritone acoustic guitar with a longer sustain. Nice tension and responsive to different tunings.

"Popularly priced XL nickel round wound bass strings are wound with the same nickel-plated steel alloy as XL round wound guitar strings. Today's XL string specifications are the culmination of years of experimentation by Jim D'Addario and John D'Addario, Sr. Even now, D'Addario's sound room is crowded with different electric bass guitars for experimentation with different string specifications and for quality tests on string production. The XL series of D'Addario's broadest and largest-selling line of electric bass guitar strings, with 18 different string models offered. Many models are available in both environmental and standard packaging."
