Velvet recommends Anima as their hybrid or multi-use string for Pizz or Arco play.
The Velvet Anima is a copper-wound Double Bass string and extremely versatile for both arco and pizzicato playing. The warm tone and low tension make these strings very versatile and easy to play, and the thinner core ensures a rapid response. The strings produce a strong well balanced sound with a rich bass and open 'harmonic' range. Perfect definition and audibilty in all registers make them suitable for practically every application from Jazz to Baroque. Please note that Velvet strings require careful and exact installation which we provide free of charge.

The Blue is the first Velvet string that doesn’t have a silk core, instead it has a synthetic core that took almost 2 years to develop. Following the philosophy of the other Velvet strings: great articulation, big volume and sustain and equal tension on all 4 strings. The Blue has it all, it’s a bit brighter than the silk cousins, but offers a fast response with a great articulation and nice volume. So far the response has been tremendous, from students to professional jazz players, these strings have been creating quite a buzz. Please note that Velvet strings require careful and exact installation which we provide free of charge.

Velvet Garbo are a long lasting, tonally stable double bass string and are considered the strings of choice for the jazz bassist. The solid core highlights the particular frequencies which enable the acoustic instrument to hold its own – even against a drum set. The sound is especially distinctive for the lower-middle frequency range, offering rich harmonics that are clear and assertive with the familiar “kick” as the note begins. The Garbo strings can produce a fullness of tone and penetration which is simply unbeatable. Please note that Velvet strings require careful and exact installation which we provide free of charge.
