Since having collected a few vintage basses, I havent found a string which lets the sound of the bass shine through as well as these. They are not too bright at the start, even after months when they are not new or bright anymore, they still sound good. Other strings sound very bad when they go dead! Easy on the fingers & frets too. Couldnt say one bad word about them.
Dont think ive ever! broken one either, i used to break rotosound ALL the time
