Versatile.

Robert F. 353, 16.04.2014
From funk to walking jazz, to harmonics, to simple, grounding basslines, I'm able to get a broad range of sounds out of these strings. They're a little thin at the thin end (2x MEC dynamic correction pickups) but this can be remedied by playing closer to the middle of the string length.
They've bedded in well, and now have quite a sophisticated tone, (eq flat) with mids when required, clarity, good sustain and nice overtones, yet without too much aggression.
They still feel smooth to play, and aren't shredding my fingertips, or tiring my hands.

My only niggle is that the low B string is a little loose - at 34" scale - and I wouldn't mind trying the same set with a 115 or 120 B string.

Expensive, but brilliant and long lasting sound

Klausi2, 13.02.2014
If you are looking for a rather bright sounding string set this article might be an interesting choice for you. This string set is well balanced from b-string to g-string and has a rather soft feel to it. As the b-string is only .125 it can be played with less effort compared to thicker, stiffer strings. The price tag for this string set is rather hefty but DR strings tend to last long and deliever a constant sound over months. If you are looking for a rahter traditional, mellow sound then you might want to look somehwere else. But paired with a Stingray bass you might find the "zing" in your sound you were alway looking for!
