Products / Norteno / Bajo Quinto

DR’s Bajo Quinto is designed to sound clear, bright and musical.

In order to create a very unique Bajo Quinto set, we have used two different materials which are Stainless Steel and Nickel Plated Steel with a combination core wire.  .060  &  .080 - Stainless  Steel bass strings  are  round wound  and constructed  upon a round core with loop ends. Both of these strings will provide highly flexible and musically bright  and warm  strings.  .026, .036, .046, .030 - strings are Nickel Plated Steel on a Hex core with loop ends.  All 4 strings will compliment with the Nickel bass strings with highly warm and bright sound.


*Absolutely great for Bajos equipped with a variety of pick-ups such as piezo or magnetic.

Also available in COLOR

Black and Red (non-luminescent)

K3™ Color is applied to provide a long lasting strings, more volume, less unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation then standard, uncoated strings. Yet, they provide the same protection due to corrosion and perspiration as well as increased tone life that coated strings are known for.

NEON™ Green (Luminescent)

K3™ NEON™ is applied to provide a long lasting string with a super bright glow. Bright in the day light, or under stage lighting. DR NEON™ Bajo Quinto strings "pop" in appearance, sparkle brightly, and are black light active plus glow amazing under UV lightning.
