Short scale strings with reduced tension and clear, warm tone.
Prelude bass strings are multi-stranded steel core strings that produce a warm tone quality with good bow response. The special core design and reduced tension makes for strings that are very easy to play, especially for developing players. Prelude bass strings maintain a clear, warm sound that blends well across the ensemble. The 1/2 scale strings are gauged specifically for 1/2 size bass with a playing length of 38 3/8 inches (975mm).
