  • Zyex Bass String Set, 3/4 Scale, Medium Tension
    +More Info


The D'Addario Zyex strings are the first synthetic core strings which convinced me to switch from steel strings. They feel great - they are thicker compare to steels. Their tension is lower and their timbre brighter compare to other synthetic strings, which make them close to gut strings both in terms of feel and sound, but with all the advantages of modern technology. And they bow great and last long.

A D’Addario Orchestral player since 2011.

Bassist and composer Jaromír Honzák performed with virtually all of the major figures of the Czech jazz scene. Jaromír co-founded the group Naima, which fast became one of the most significant Czech jazz groups of the 1980s.

He has performed at a number of international festivals including Sea Jazz Helsinki, Ingolstadter Jazztage, Leverkusener Jazztage, the Jazz Jamboree Warsaw, the Montreal International Jazz Festival and many others. In 1989 Jaromír was awarded both Berklee and Fulbright scholarships to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston. There he studied with Bruce Gertz, Hal Crook, John La Porta and Rick Peckham, and performed with fellow students Jorge Rossy, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Roy Hargrove, Mark Turner and Chris Cheek.
