Seta 900 Basses

25.00 + VAT

These guitar basses are a reproduction of what was available between the end of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. They are made using a real silk core, and since silk is a natural product of an insect, it cannot be consistently regular in its gauge. As a consequence, it may happen that the bass strings at 12th fret may be flat or sharp to a certain extent. The limit accepted by us is of 8 cents higher or lower. Beyond this value, the string is considered non-compliant and it will be replaced.

Besides, we would like to remind that the degree of compensation introduced by the inclination of the bone of the bridge – which is calibrated to the modern strings with a core of Nylon – may not apply to strings with a core of natural silk.

We suggest to use this set of basses at a standard pitch of 435 Hz on guitars with a vibrating length of 65 cm or less (not longer), and possibly on original instruments prior to 1946: instruments of that period preserve the original bridge and nut that are suitable for gut strings (semicircular profile, not too deep notches, and total absence of sharp edges)

Lastly, it is recommended, when strings are not played, to tune them a semitone lower, in order to ensure a maximum lifetime.
