    These strings sound like typical nickel plated strings. The sound is soft but also bright. They also provide a smooth surface which enables long playing hours. The b and the e-string are tape wound, which should enable the string to vibrate properly. I didn't notice any difference to other strings. At the beginning you have to get familiar with this because, depending on the bridge, you feel disturbed by the tape while plucking close to the bridge. Furthermore, I won't recommend these strings for picking. I destroyed various picks because the ending of the low string's tape wound works like a rasp. Summarising it I would claim that these strings are not for bass players who pluck close to the bridge.

    My first choice for 5-string basses

    I have been through dozens of strings, but at the end, I always end up with my Fenders. A balanced, warm sound, good quality with acceptable lifespan.
    If you are looking especially for taperwound strings for bridges like Warwick, these strings are definitely worth a look !
