I'm using the EPS-160-5s on a Warwick RB Corvette $$ (34" scale), which doesn't sound have a lot of treble by itself, especially considering it does not have a preamp where you could boost those. The strings are used for standard tuning, where the tension works well, and for half step down tunings, where the lowest string is a little too lose.
The sound is very sparkly at the beginning, which might force some players to roll back their eq either on the bass or the amp. But for those who occasionally play chords it might be a great way, to give them more presence. The treble wears off after a few weeks of regular playing. If you either don't like Elixirs (or coated strings at all), or don't wanna spend so much on strings, you have few alternatives if you want to play chords or treble-heavy metal.
