Extremely good value
shandou, 19.03.2019
I have used many strings on my bass, ranging from the more expensive Ernie Balls to the cheaper Warwicks and even cheaper Harley Bentons. I have to say that these are not just good strings _for the price_ but simply good strings. Ernie Balls died earlier on me than these. EBs and Warwicks sound a little better, so for studio recordings I would invest in more expensive strings, but for band practice and live purposes these will be good enough! If you are on a limited budget you will sound a LOT better if you buy a new set of these for every second gig you do than buy an expensive set and use it for 4-6 gigs. For home purposes these last long enough. I have these on my standard tuned basses for over a year now and they still have some 'zing'.
My only problem with Harley Benton strings is that they don't make these for Drop C tuning!!!

Cheap but Okay
31.03.2016
At this price, I just had to give these things a chance. I have some excellent pickups on my bass and sacrificing tone probably isn't a good idea; but I reasoned that these strings must be worth a trial; they did not disappoint me. I just had to get over the idea of their price not necessarily reflecting their value.

I have used cheap bass strings before and been pleased; so I didn't see the harm in trying these. Previously, as a guitar player, I had always used my favourite brands and never deviated from that way of going on. However, as a converted bass player, and having seen the prices of some sets of strings, I lowered my sights. I don't play as regularly as I once did so paying 20 quid per set isn't practical. I like paying less for things; and if those things work well, I get a kick out of it.

These strings sound fine for the money. At this point, I don't know how long they will last but I suppose at this money, I can afford to change them more regularly.

My advice is to give these a try. Add a set to your next Thomann order, and if you hate them, you haven't lost much; that's what I did and I will be buying them again.

Le suono da anni
Mattias, 24.04.2014
Come già espresso per le corde per chitarra da sei e da 12 devo dire che le corde per basso sono davvero buone mantengono una brillantezza anche dopo tante suonate difficilmente le si può distinguere da corde di valore molto molto superiore. Inoltre sono molto curate anche dal punto di vista estetico e il rivestimento in seta arancione non guasta.
La filosofia è sempre la stessa avere un prezzo accessibile per delle corde di una discreta qualità non va ad incidere su un portafoglio e quindi queste corde possono essere cambiate continuamente.
Ormai le regalo anche ai miei amici bassisti per fare loro provare e magari farli ricredere sul fatto che siano di cattiva qualità. Ci sono corde più costose che sono altrettanto performanti.
Pochi fronzoli, pochi riguardi a fronte di corde sponsorizzate ed endorcer da pagare. Cosi si abbattono i costi. E la cosa si fa ancora piú interessante se si tiene presente che queste le corde sono anche in versione leggermente più costosa made in the US ehi e disponibili anche per il basso a cinque corde l'unica cosa da tener presente è che la muta da cinque corde è solo per bassi che hanno la conformazione 3 + 2 o 4 + 1 ma non cinque chiavette in linea.

Initally had quite high tension but they settled down.
20.12.2015
They don't have as much winding as more expensive strings but they are definitely great value for money. You won't get bass strings for cheaper. I always used to use 40 euro branded strings, even for bar gigs where I would just be buried in the mix. These are great value for money for day to day use, I will save the expensive ones for the studio from now on.

Great strings, great value
16.07.2016
This is more or less what I wrote for the 5-string version of these strings. I think strings are an important component of how the instrument feels, and I am not usually inclined to be a cheapskate when buying them. However, these play as well as other brand strings and really do not cost as much.

Some corners may have been cut, but in the end they just play quite well. I find the tension might be a little lower?and to be perfectly honest, it seems to me that they might be ever-so-slightly thinner than other strings of the same gauge (as advertised on the pack).

This is in no way a deal breaker, though. I mostly install them on my cheaper basses, but now I have a set on a nicer Jazz Bass and they play very well.

They seem to have a very decent lifespan. Perhaps they are not quite as bright as other brands when new, but they do keep their brightness for quite a while.

In conclusion, these are nice strings, could go well on any bass, really, and at this point my only complaint is that they do not do any six string version, which would be nice as nowadays I mainly play a sixer. Other than that, I highly recommend them.

Can't beat the buck for value on these.
05.10.2016
I purchased these a while back, simply for testing them out. Harley Benton products have so far done right by me, so I wanted to check out their el-cheapo strings.

Wound them up on my bass, tuned to drop C, and the got going. Though they're in no means the 'perfect' strings, no set out there really is. They sounded out nice, a little short on the sustain, but really good lows and even the high-end sounded ok.

Point of it all? Even if they had been priced the cost of any decent brand set (i.e. 25-40) I'd still think they'd be ok. But priced at around the 5 euro mark, these are just brilliant.

They've kept up their sound even after some months, and right now I'd restring any set of strings anyway.

Pretty good bang for the buck.

how do thet do it?
John773, 05.04.2014
I recently bought a bunch of HB guitar strings as I had bought a couple of cheap guitars and was doing them up to sell, and wanted some cheapo strings and was blown away for the quality for the money of HB strings ..and these are the same. I have a fender precision and don't often change strings theyre too expensive and dont break or wear out so why bother
but at four quid a pack these are a great deal. I cant see any difference in quality to any twelve quid packet.

Budget price - but not budget tone
27.02.2015
Bass strings are quite expensive and so often I will wait longer than I should before replacing them, however I recently spotted these and decided to add a packet alongside my other items to see if they were any good. They are packaged in the typical heady duty plastic bag and each string is individually packaged in a sealed plastic bag. Unlike other similarly priced strings I have bought, these have the ends wrapped in silk (in this case orange coloured).

I was not expecting much from them given the price but I was pleasantly surprised. I would say about 90% of the tone of the ?big? brands is there. Will need to wait longer to see about their longevity, but they have not immediately died after 3 or 4 sessions ? So far so good. Worth adding a packet to your order, it could end up saving you a lot of money!

Great value for bass guitar strings
JoaoMarquess, 06.09.2018
It's the strings I'm using on my Squier jazz bass and they're great. The bass strings are usually very expensive, but this is not the case.

They're not the brightest in tone, so if you're after that contrabass sound they are just perfect.

So, just get them and you won't regret it.

Cheap But Good Quality Strings
Alex8785, 22.12.2015
Very cheap bass strings that are a great quality and saved an actual concert for me.

I bought these because a friend of mine had actually broke a string on one of my basses, not only was i annoyed but in a dilemma, not having much money at and having to buy strings 5 days before a gig, i could just afford these but really expected to have to buy new string soon after using these but surprisingly im still using them to this day, i would prefer them in a thicker 50 gauge but sadly Harley Benton does not provide them.

Tone wise they dont sound much different between D'arrdrios which is what i tend to use, genre wise they are
very flexible as well, i tend to stick to hard rock/heavy metal but they do suit and i can get some very nice tones
from them acoustically and amped up.

They are tending to decay and get dirty but i do use my bass regularly and preform alot so i have expected this,
they do feel quiet rough after a long session like 2­3 hours and can cause some soreness to possible new
players.

Overall you get some good strings for a very low price

Fantastic budget strings
SemiHollowR, 21.01.2018
I would recommend these strings to everyone, who buys a new bass - just change the factory strings to these, and you will improve the sound of your instrument in a blink of an eye. The copper-looking ends add a nice touch to the overall look of the instrument, and there is nothing wrong with their quality. At that price, these strings are hard to beat.

Inexpensive bass strings
And.M., 04.01.2018
The only strings I could find at this price are the SINGLE strings for bass. But these do their job flawlessly, and at a quarter than what I'd have spent on a "known brand" set. Put on my bass a couple of months ago and they are still sounding brand new. Also, I kept them in the package for months and no rust or oxidation. Great value!

Best for the bucks!!!
WhiteEdge, 24.01.2016
Excellent bass strings. Not just for the price which is unbeatable, this HB strings ROCK on pair with Ernie Ball thomann and RotoSound. D'addario are little brighter than HB but for Nickel Plated Steel strings must say they have lots of pleasant ringing.
If you by this bass set you cant go wrong!
I love the blue ends on the strings and how fresh they sound, and thy stay thomann fresh for decent period of time..not as Elixir but not worse than Dunlop,EB,DAddario etc..
I pot this and 40-095 on my Fender Jazz Bass and Fender Sting Precision bass and sound is very good. I don't know why people would buy anything else, they're great

Very, very good value roundwound strings
wgen, 10.11.2016
When I saw the price of these nickel plated roundwound strings I couldn't believe it. I couldn't resist to try those...and I'll tell you, they left me pleasantly surprised!
They sound and react pretty much as a typical set of strings of this type should, if not the sound isn't that much bright at the beginning maybe, but honestly I'm loving these strings because of that! They are clear and bright, mind you, it's just that they are not the brightest strings in my experience.
Silk is light orange, if you have to know that.
Tension is medium high, so the sound is punchy and bold. Very nice indeed!

Super value
26.08.2016
I got these for a throwabout bass i use for occasional recording... i was not sure as the price was so low but they're incredible, still going strong after even playing a few gigs with them on and I can't hear or feel any difference between these and 'name' brands.

Decent strings
Max48, 30.09.2014
there Cheap but theres nothing wrong with them as good as makes which were costing me 10x more. they have standard gauges of string and they last a long time and don't go grubby easily like other strings i have used in the past , there nice and i use the strings on all my basses and have a few sets in the bass bags incase of an emergency. Its only brand snobs who will have a problem with these strings and my suggestion for them would be to keep a box of high brand strings in there case to show off to there mates and stick these ones on the actual bass :P.Just stick them in your basket !!
