Double Silver Basses 

I usually play Saverez Cantiga bass strings.

I would like to hear reviews or comments
about double silver bass strings.

e.g. Knobloch Actives
Pyramid Double Silver
La Bella Argento SH Sterling
or others that may be out there.

RE: Double Silver Basses (in reply to oc chuck

I have used Knobloch and Pyramid in the past.
I don’t remember the details, but they are very expensive and not worth the cost IMHO.
I just put on some Cantigas yesterday and like them.
All bass strings die pretty quickly anyway so better to go with lower cost.


Ah well, there was a fantastic passion there, in my case anyway. I discovered flamenco
very early on. It grips you in a way that you can't get away - Paco Pena

I don't know, I think the best thing to do is just bite the bullet and try them. Different guitars sound different to different ears and different ears hear differently on different days. What?....

Knobloch basses just last forever, really. Just be careful of the tension. The medium basses feel a bit harder than Savarez Cantiga or La Bella or D' Addario medium and less flexible.
