Ernie's Beasts

I normally use these strings on my Warwick fretless Streamer with drop A tuning, and they're a bunch of monsters. Gnarly, punchy, bright, warm, everything a drop tuned bass needs.

However, I've previous used these strings with my fretted Warwick Corvette, and I did not like the results. The thickness of the B string and the standard tuning with my fretted Warwick just didn't go together well, and it took a lot of tone out of the strings and the instrument.

I use these with fretless Warwick Streamer, and Darkglass B7K overdrive pedal. This combination is an earthquake maker, and I recommend it to any bass players who need aggressive sounds.

Very good strings

Comfortable, durable, keep tuning really well, sounds great, and cheaper than other options. Ernie Ball always delivers on quality, they've always been my favourite brand for both guitar and bass

Total growl
Muncky 13.02.2014
I was looking for strings that would allow me to tune my Precision bass down to BEAD.
So after some string sets with up to .115 I struggled to get a clear tone not getting 'mushy' and having a string tension thats not to low.

So I took the lower four strings from this set and put them on my P-bass.
I had to rasp the saddle a bit as the strings didn't fit but after that and tuning the strings it was all good.

So the P-bass was tuned to BEAD and when I played at our rehearsals it was awesome. Punch, deep rich Bass and a growl that made my Precision a real beast.

I have never heard any strings that produce that much growl (and I tried many. From Rotosound to D'addario, from Pyramid to Warwick Black label and so on)

My favourite pack!
Blasphemer 09.04.2014
I'm play bass for like 10 years and i've tryed everthing, but those strings are the best!

They are quite cheap, I like 135' gauge for my half step down tuning A#. I have only 34' mensur bass and 130' gauge feels kinda woubly. They stay bright for a long time, but I had some premature "dead" B strings after few weeks of playing. I'm still not sure if it's bridge or string fault.

I'm liking the sound because it's bright, responsive and Ernie Balls always had that signature "ring" to it. I've tried D'ddarrio's, DR's, Rotosound's but Ernie's are the strings of choice for me!

If you need 135' gauge string pack, go for it, they are great for A or A# standard or drop tuning.

Rock n' roll!
