Belcanto/Spirocore "Velvet Blues" Set


Velvet Strings was a company that made several well-regarded double bass string sets; the Anima, Garbo, and Blues were their most popular offerings. The Velvet strings were somewhat unusual in their design and materials usage, and over the years they have earned a very dedicated and devoted user base. With the unfortunate (and unforseen) dissolution of Velvet Strings, many people have been looking for string sets that have a similar feel and tone to the strings that the company once made.
