Innovation Super Silver Bass Strings, Great for Bluegrass and Rockabilly
Psycho Slap, Silver Slap, Golden Slap are other labels of these strings with slightly different characteristics. ALL of them have braided nylon core with nylon winding.
These are the favorite slap bass strings of a LOT of slappers. They have a great tension for easy slapping and a big acoustic tone and volume across the register.
Most of the slap bass players I deal with are looking for either the big fat meaty sound of weedwacker pro's or they want a more defined sound on the E and A that weedwackers won't give.
Innovation Slap Strings Deliver !
Gut strings are $300+ for a nice set, and they are hard to keep in tune, and break at random times. So a lot of players won't go there.
Silver Slaps are fantastic synthetic gut style strings and they are unique in several ways:
Braided nylon core for a dense enough core for a strong acoustic volume
Wraps and Nylon windings that give natural click slap sound
Durability and ability to stay in tune
Cool silvery white look
Very little stretch, hold pitch soon after installing
Satisfy band mates that want a more defined sound out of your slap bass
Local Rockabilly Player: I was happy with weedwacker pro's but my band mates wanted a more defined sounding E and A. I tried several other strings then Tom at FMI showed me Silver Slaps and I love them! My picky band mates are happy now and I still am too.
"What a great solution to high tension steel strings! I tried all the strings on basses at FMI. The Silver Slaps were EASY on my fingers but still had a big warm sound. I liked the sound of the Innovation Honeys too but they are too stiff for slapping and I want to slap on a few songs. So Silver Slaps are my choice."
