Solo Bass 55
4-String Hybrid Gauge (40 - 60 - 80 - 100)
Another first designed in 1977 by James How is the stainless steel bass string with his patented linea pressure-wound finish.
Once the string is wound a rolling technique is applied under pressure which displaces the crown of each winding producing a flat that reduces finger noise and friction thus allowing for more rapid finger movement.
The linea effect accentuates the middle frequencies resulting in a tone quite different from a normal round-wound string.
Great for studio work when tackling quieter musical passages.
