They might be cheap, but when it comes to sound, they are worth way more. I use them on my Ibanez K5, which is tuned to BEADG and it sounds killer. I never had strings that produce that much growl! Also the low B is really clear and punchy. Many strings could be slightly undefined or mushy on the low B bute this one is great.
They might feel a bit rough the first few hours or compared to nickel plated steel, but it's not too uncomfortable.
Also with the K5 it's sometimes a problem to keep the tuning stable with certain strings. With this strings I had no problems. they are really stable even when really diggin' in.
When you are using a five string Warwick bass you have a limited choice of strings because you need a tappered b-string that fits in the two-piece Warwick bridge. The strings are reasonably priced and have the bright sound of steel strings without getting too fizzy. As the b-string features a quite heavy .135 gauge it feels rather stiff at first but you can get used to it after a while. Compared with other strings I've used the sound stays brilliant for a relatively long time but are no match for coated strings. One point that can be a problem for some people is that the strings are relatively rough - check them out before you buy if you can
