Bright steel strings with excellent sound (while it lasts)

01.08.2016
I have used Rotosound steel strings on and off for years and you consistently receive a product with the same pro's and con's.

Pros:
-Bright 'zingy' sound
-Deep, solid low end
-Rough feel (might not be for everyone but I prefer it)
-Nice covered string ends (stops the machine heads from getting scratched)

Cons:
-The tone 'dies' rather quickly, especially if you sweat on stage
-When the tone 'dies' you are left with a clunky, unpleasant tone
-For me the A string seems too light gauge and the D too heavy

To summarise, I absolutely love the bright tone of these strings, but that tone just doesn't last long enough, leading me to look to other brands. Other brands may not be as bright as Rotosounds, but the tone they give you seems to last a lot longer, and can still be pleasing when 'dead'.

Rotosound...

BaS17, 20.02.2014
This where my first Rotosound strings i played, and i have to say, i like the sound.

Rotosound where the company which introduced the Roundwound Stringtype,
(everybody bevore played Flatwound)

I was looking for new Roundwound, because i dont like the Daddario ones,
and a friend of mine meand this Strings would be great.

I have to say, the sound is good, fits very good with a Precision Bass,
and i could use them for 3 Month.

Then the Sound loose a bit of his "crunch"

A friend of mine had a Problem with the E String, it was dead.
i heard from others that this problem could be, but this happend sometimes even with Erny Ball.

I found it great that Rotosoud use organic material for the Package,
so you dont have so much garbage.

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