Rockabilly Nylon Strings Weedwackers for Upright Bass
Also spelled Weed Wacker, Weedwhacker or Weed
Whacker Strings - best known as Weedwackers.
Highest quality Solid Nylon material, and best research to find the best guages of strings for strongest sound while maintaining ease of slap, AND enough tension to hold the bridge in place during aggressive slapping.
These low-medium tension G and D weedwacker strings are EASY on the fingers because of the lower tension, smooth nylon surface and thicker diameter than steel strings. The E and A are the higher tension kevlar core.
We include 3 strings for the G and D positions so you can find what gauge gives you the feel/tension you're looking for.
You can go low to medium tension on the G and D, and the A and E nylon kevlar core will balance nicely for feel.
The A will be .155 gauge nylon kevlar core, the E will be .170 gauge nylon kevlar core to give enough tension and sound to the E and A. Makes a fabulous set of weedwacker strings!
Play LONG Gigs without tearing your fingers up!
If you can't afford $250 gut or $90 LaBella Supernil strings, these are the next best thing going for great slapping sound and action, and WARM tone to the MAXXX!!
They amplify well so why wait any longer, grab a set or two of weedwackers for your bass.
Lifetime warranty against fraying or breakage.
I've had numerous rockabilly bass players come to my store and play one of my basses setup with these weedwacker strings. They always start grinning and slapping like a rockin' fool. It's pretty obvious they LOVE these strings for rockabilly and psychobilly slap playing.
The slap sound gives a good clean click without heavy metallic clanks like steel strings do.
AND they are more flexible, lower tension than steel, and easier to handle in every way than steel strings.
Great for Bluegrass and Gospel as well, can be heard throughout a LARGE room, and if you're amping then of course they'll be heard well at any gig.
