not special

Gululu, 14.02.2014
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.

Fantastic strings.

BailerDave, 30.01.2016
I mainly use these Fender strings on my Warwick basses due to them being taper wound and I also find they're the best value for money. They're very responsive and bright sounding strings and I find the tone lasts a long time too, I usually don't change them for a few months depending on how often I gig each set. Highly recommend them!

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