Chorda Series

The Chorda series of strings offer players a traditional sound. The sheep gut core has a warm, soft sound that is commonly associated with classical pieces. The silver winding on the E and A strings offer more forgiving playability and a slightly brighter edge. The medium tension offers consistent playing accuracy and tonal balance. The Chorda series is ideal for bassists wanting a traditional gut sound with comfortable playability.
