Different but great
ProgBass 14.02.2014
Yet so far I did not decide to spend that much money on a set of new bass strings.
As I realized that my Rotosound Swing Bass Set lasts shorter and shorter with its freshness and the costs exceeded I decided to buy the Elixir Stainless Steel set for my Jazz Bass. When you take the string out of the paper you realize at first that they feel very comfortable and not that sharp as many others of this category do. Strung up the instrument had to be adjusted. These strings are harder to pull than others I tried before. So when you decide to play them be aware to take some time to get common with the strength, even if my Roto set was a 105, too. Once getting comfortable with it you will love it! Because of the Nanoweb layer they may not sound that sharp as a new set of Rotosound strings but also not that flat as when the Rotos are played. All in all a very great set of strings which someone should try who wants to have some which last longer and sound fresh.

Good sound

I haven't used Elixir for many years, and I was again impressed by the sound of the strings, which remains well sounding for months, as long as you clean the strings with proper string cleaning products.
However, the low E-string broke after only a couple of weeks, and when I thought about it I haven't broken a string for many years, since actually I was using Elixir (also the low E-string that time). Maybe a coincidence, but in my thought it points to weak build quality.
So, good sound but use with a bit of extra care

Ok, they cost more, but they last 5 times or more as long

The real benefit in these strings is just how much abuse they take and still sound bright months later. I used to play cheaper strings in the c.¤20-25 range but I found that these lost their brightness after 2 months versus the Elixirs which could last 6 months or more without costs 3 times the price. I wouldn't buy any other strings now.

Perfect

After one year of active use, the sound is very good and clear, just couple of dark spots on the strings and coating is torn where fingers are plucking, but that should be expected after one year of use.
I'm just thrilled to have this strings on my bass

I have to buy another set for test how long will perform good without cleaning the string..... :)
