Zyex strings are named after the synthetic material that makes up their cores. Zyex is a multi-fibered material consisting of very fine, soft tendrils, with a consistency like dental floss. The many fibers gives Zyex a warm, complex tone similar to natural gut in sound.
Who/what is it for?
Zyex strings were designed to be a top-level string suitable for professionals as well as advanced students. They are available for violin, viola and double bass.
Zyex have a warm synthetic core. They work particularly well on bright instruments, bringing out their warmth and complexity. They have a quick settling time and are very resistant to climate changes and pitch fluctuations.
Bass Zyex is a great substitute for real gut, providing the rich sustain of gut without the inconsistencies.
