Brilliant set of strings with a twist
conkal, 19.01.2018
I selected these strings because they are used by a player that i really admire. (Jeff Hughell) and they also have a technology that i havent used before on a string ( tapered/ compound wound)

They are used on a Warwick GPS Corvette $$

The tone of them is BRILLIANT.I was positively shocked when they were installed on the bass . Combination of Clarity with tight bass. They combine a stainless steel sound with a bit more warmth than classic SS and at the same time the feel on the fingers is smooth like nickels. They have the right ammount of tension for fast playing. They are also full of harmonic overtones and may increase the finger noise on them if you dont look out.

I cannot comment about durability because they on my bass for very short time.

The original packaged missed the seventh string [it was technically a 6string package] but this was corrected very fast from thomann as they sent it to me immediately..

So far, so good. Time will tell about the durability.

6 for 7
01.04.2017
It's a pretty decent set of strings, but I lost a the .022 string fairly quickly. It snapped before getting in tune, and I read someone else's snapped too, so take that into consideration.

But the other strings sound great and I still have them popped on my bass after over two years. Just the F string broke fairly quickly so I had to replace that, the rest is great. Even now it's still sounding mildy fresh and very slappable. The feel of the string is nice for all playing techniques I can come up with.

They do feel a bit floppy, I'd like it a bit tighter, but still they do the job fairly well and string choice is limited for a seven string bass. It's probably cheaper than getting seven individual strings though, so it's worth a shot to see if you dig it.
Just be very careful with that .022 string.

High quality strings set for ERB
FunkyM, 17.09.2019
Use
I use with my Conklin Groove Tool 7 string bass. This set is taper core end - be ready to re-adjust your bass bridge, especially if you are using convenient strings. Very good and high quality strings set!

pros
Very good tonal characteristic: deep lows and crisp high. Fingerstyle groove sounds fundamental and aggresive. For slap and tap is good, if this caliber is good for you. Tension is high (on my instrument). String life is more than other Dean Markley sets (Blue Steel). High (C, F) strings very long life.

Cons
Tension of strings can be lower, but some bass player prefer high tension strings.
