Fits a Stagg EDB 3/4 perfectly!!
I searched and searched for replacement strings for a friend's Stagg electric double bass (3/4) and the first two sets we tried were too short for some reason (they were 3/4 scale). The third set we tried were the standard stagg stock strings, and they were just a bit long but worked. However the G string broke during installation since we were very inexperienced with changing double bass strings. Ordered this helicore one but thought it would be too short, and to our surprise it fit perfectly! Finally got the bass up and playing after weeks of struggling to find the right strings. So I figured I'd leave a review in case anyone else ever has our same problems. Great strings!

A good choice for the versatile bassist.
These are ideal strings for the bassist who mixes a little jazz and symphonic music. The pizzicato sound is quite nice with good sustain for jazz and the arco sound is full and round. You won't get as much volume as you would with a traditional orchestral string but for those who do a little of both on one instrument this set fits the bill nicely. These strings have a fairly soft feel as well with a medium tension.

Very tinny. Unacceptable for orchestral or jazz use. Maybe rock and roll.
I was shocked when I listened to these after installation. Very very tinny. Not acceptable at all. And I've lost $146. I would be laughed out of the orchestra if I used them. So now I have to find something to replace them. Wow. What a waste.

I bought these strings because the reviews were positive for use in any kind of music. They have a nice crisp sound but made my upright bass sound like an electric. I primarily play in an orchestra so will choose a different type next time. However, if you’re going to play a broader variety of music I would recommend them.

Very Cool!
I was pleasantly surprised by this set of D'Addario Helicore Bass Strings. Deep & dark, a warm tone over all...sound reminiscent of gut. I wish they were "just a little brighter" however they are perfect for what I need them for. Easy to play and VERY BALANCED. I will be buying this set again :)

Perfect Choice for Short Scale Instrument
I usually use medium tension set for my regular instrument, but for smaller instrument I use for traveling, with 100 cm string speaking length, medium tension strings feel a bit too soft and speak slow. So I tried this heavy tension set and it was great success. I feel enough resistance from the strings, and get nice punch and low frequencies even with smaller body.

I choose D'Addario strings and I haven't been disappointed. These strings are tough
My youngest son plays the upright bass and when a string broke, I had to find a replacement. Lucky for me, I did my research. Based on the reviews, I choose D'Addario strings and I haven't been disappointed. These strings are tough, yet ring clear when played. And they are reasonably priced.

Just what I need
I use these strings on both my basses they are medium light to the touch, bow easily and clean off easily as well I play 3-5 times a week and they last about 9 months to a tear. OK There not Pirastro but they are an excellent hybrid for diverse playing and don't stress the top.
