BASS STRINGS
Once there was a British bass string that everyone loved. Who wants our hard-earned bucks going out of the country, anyway? We did something about it.

Super Round recreates that Bass String perfectly… and then some. So let's keep the bucks in the States and play an even better string… okay?

Available in 4 and 5 string sets.

The Experience

Musicians are well acquainted with the quest for tone. We’ll try all sorts of guitars, strings, and other gear—anything that might lead us closer to that elusive “Holy Grail” sound. But we’re not the only ones who will tinker with something that’s already good, hoping to make it just a little bit better.

Dean Markley is obsessed with tone. That’s no surprise. But maybe you don’t know how obsessed. Look no further than Super Rounds to find the answer.

There was a time when many bass players were using a string made by the British. It had a reputation for outstanding tone. So Dean decided to find out what it was about those strings that sounded so good. He learned everything there was to know about the materials used, how they were wound, and what they liked to eat for breakfast. And when he thought he knew what made them tick, he didn’t stop there. Instead, he thought about how he could make them even better. The result is Super Round, a great stainless steel bass string with tons of punch, boundless tone, and British bloodlines.

Dean Markley Super Round strings… they’re the bees’ knees, mate!
