Exactly without discrepancy
Mr. Tvld 04.11.2020
I was very pleasantly surprised. These are nickel and there is a good difference between these and other nickel strings, they seem to last reasonably well too. I use these on Harley Benton PB-20 SBK Standard Series. Great for punkrock, for "old school" stoner, acid rock etc. The sound is clear, "elastic" bottom, good middle, top without much ringing, but there is no lack of high frequencies. I use these strings first time as i was concerned about something cheaper.

Damn excellent value for money.

Surprisingly good strings
Mike.s 20.11.2020
I acquired a few sets of these to string up some bases that weren't going to be regular players since £30+ per bass gets expensive when ones has multiple basses.

The big surprise was during a jazz bass stringing experiment when I actually found these to be a lot closer than their competition to the full on bright tone i was looking for.

This is clearly just a personal thing but at least one of my Jazz basses is going to be strung with these from now on.

Now, the only thing i don't love about these strings is the feel, especially when new but i generally use expensive strings and that these are not! I also felt they were a little brighter than I would like on a precision bass but please accept that as my opinion based on my personal preferences.

Worth the asking price, certainly, they are good, consistently made strings you can trust.

Good Value even with the postage!
Anonymous 19.12.2016
So I bought a stack of these for abot £4.50 a set (including the £10 postage).
I thought what the hell, if they're awful, I'll just pop them on some of the home use basses lying around.
I've waited untill they've been properly gigged before passing comment. I have used them on a couple of rehersals last week as well.

Tension/Feel
They're pretty slack but I quite lack that, they're also fairly rough on the fingers to start with but that sorted itself out after a couple of hours and they didn't feel any worse than other branded nicklewound strings that Ive used (rotos, La Bellas, Legacy)

Sound
Nice and bright to start, 2 rehersals and a gig later still zingy with lots of snap, how long they will last is the big question. Im not a sweaty player so we'll see. I did notice a dead spot on the bottom G (3rd fret E string) and Im hoping thats the strings and not the neck! They gigged fine, no one complained and even the guitarist who hated the Harley Guitar strings I got him was surprised how bright they still sounded.

Value
Well obviously good value

Overall conclusion
Early days but quite promising. Are they as good as my old Hard Rocking Steels? No. As good as the legacy (from strings direct), yes.
They're good enough to cut through in the racket we make and at that price I think Im going to give them a chance, even if they start to fade a few gigs down the road, just pop a fresh set on.

Cheap stirngs wich sounds like the cheapest
ValeriyFaustov 25.02.2022
I bought this strings, because I want to compare this strings with other strings in this price. Althought another string would be cheaper, it sounds better.
My verdict: this strings must be use for new players for practice, but for performance shall be use more expencive strings
