Innovation Rockabilly Strings were the first offering in their "Slap" line of strings and have a distinctive black outer winding over a synthetic core. These strings, designed specifically for the needs of rockabilly bassists, provide warmer, darker tone with decent volume, making them a great string for players who play predominantly slap-style.
Their decidedly gut-like tone - and softness - makes them a great alternative to the expense and maintenance requirements of real gut strings.
Players report that the Rockabilly strings are a good synthetic slap-style string - and they have the side benefit that they actually sound quite good for jazz pizzicato playing; they provide the player with enough sustain and growl to cover a jazz gig without changing to a different string. They are a little stiffer in feel than the Silver Slaps or Golden Slaps (an important distinction is made between "stiffness" and "tension") so the feel of the string is somewhat different.
