Great strings all 5!

Adri, 06.10.2014
I bought this set for my 5 stringed e-bass and can't be happier, they suit my bass quite well I think.
The sound on my active bass is perfect to play sort of fusion jazz or world music, they are not too punchy or bright, I believe they are not too good to play rock, heavy metal or hard stuff where you may want more of a sharp cutting sound, also not good to play slap style, they are just too thick and also hard to bend, plus when doing so seems they might not take it too well and might snap.
My bass guitar is quite a cheap one but with a proper set up and with this strings and plugged to a good cabinet makes a good sound, like I said I feel this set is more adequate to play certain styles, not too aggressively will do.
The feel on the touch is very good too, satin like, and being thick reminds of a double bass, also keeps my nails in good shape to play guitar!
On the negative side you might have to mod your axe if the gauge of your nut is too narrow to accommodate the new set, also it takes a bit to get used to this thick strings under your fingers

No buy again

Basstool, 10.03.2017
I bought one set for my fretless bass. The low B string was dead right out of the package. The 4 other strings were okay, but it did not gave me the sound that I was looking for and also the touch of it was uncomfortable. It is like it does not want to vibrate enough or something.
I was disappointed, specially because it was not a cheap set. And the purple material at the end of the strings were ugly, but it is just a personal opinion...

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