These lightweight, large-diameter strings provide plenty of low-frequency umph, which resonates with a deep, rich, and wooden quality that's both reminiscent of the coveted upright sound and colored with a uniquely musical U-Bass quality all of its own.Custom Shadow electronics system delivers top-quality sound onstage
