Acoustic-electric bass guitars (ABGs) typically come equipped with a piezo-type pickup mounted in the bridge. Since piezo pickups respond to pressure instead of electromagnetism, they do not require steel-core strings to work. Let's face it. The real reason to own an ABG is to create a warm, acoustic bass tone but the combination of steel-core strings and piezo pickups usually sounds brittle, emphasizing treble tones too heavily and skimping of the low end. Enter Thomastik-Infeld Acousticores.
These are the first bass strings exclusively built for piezo-equipped ABGs. No more "fooling" your bass into sounding acoustic with drastic EQ changes. These strings sound acoustic because they are! Made of a proprietary phosphor-bronze alloy and wound around a pure nylon silk core, Acousticores deliver a "flexible" feel and easy playing tension which enables your touch to define nuance and tone like no other string on the market. If you're still playing steel-core strings on your ABG, you've simply got the wrong tools for the job. Get Acousticores and find out how your ABG was meant to sound!
