These instruments are used in guitar orchestras, as part of classical guitar quartets, jazz groups, American folk groups, and church music groups. They have also become popular among fado musicians in Portugal. Essentially, they are used where a string bass or electric bass would be used.
The nylon strings used on the contrabass produce a unique warm sound. The nylon strings are like the bass strings on a classical guitar--the core is composed of many thin nylon filaments and then thin metal wire is wrapped around the core.
Musicians who are use to playing steel string guitar basses are usually amazed with the warm, full sound of these nylon string contrabass.
The 6 string model is tuned an octave below the standard classical guitar. The 4 string model is tuned an octave below the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th strings of the standard classical guitar. With this tuning it is very simple for a player of standard guitar to play the contrabass.
