Series 16

This A and E bass strings set – which works both with the bow and pizzicato, although they are not recommended for professional use in symphony orchestras, where the use of the bow is almost exclusively required – is made of flat copper wire wrapped around a synthetic core.

Even though ‘Series 16’ has the same working tension of ‘Series 22’, it features more sustain than the latter, while still maintaining a noticeable percussive effect

Having more sustain, these basses fit best the G and D strings of the following sets: ‘Red Springs Synthetic‘ and ‘Red Springs Metal’.
