Good Strings

LeeOliveira, 03.01.2018
Bought these strings for a student of mine.
She uses a Fender Shot Scale Jaguar, the 5250XL suits her bass very very well.
Sound:
The 5250XL gives the bass a good round and the big sound. Maybe a little bit too much, these are not sthe strings if you are into slap, i'd put these strings on the pop/rock side.

Durability:
I guess the lasted as much as any bass strings with normal everyday use.

Conclusion:
Not the best but also not the worst strings on the market, for the price they are very good indeed

I will keep them

Dirk9070, 25.02.2014
I needed to change the cheap factory strings from my short scale bass
So i was curious if there is a difference when i change to the Fender 5250XL
Now i can say yes, there is a difference, it is a much better feeling for my fingers with the Fender 5250XL and also the sound is better.

There is not many strings you can choose for a short scale, so i dont now if can find better strings than the Fender 5250XL. I think it is not easy to find the perfect strings for a short scale bass. Every instrument will sound different, so my first test was the Fender 5250XL. They are much better than the factory strings from my short scale Harley Benton Bass and i will keep them on it.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
