Most famously used by Sir Paul McCartney on the Beatles’ Abbey Road, Tru Bass strings have been utilised by jazz, fusion, dub, and reggae players. The distinctive black wrap and yellow silk ends of these strings have been spotted on basses belonging to icons such as Bruce Foxton, Graham Maby, and Herbie Flowers.
