Great Strings - Great Service
Redmoss, 22.01.2019
I got these strings to change out the wire-wound I had on my Hofner Violin Bass. The new sound is terrific!!! They give a much more 60's (Beatle) sound to my baselines. Thomann provide a great service - as always. I tries to get these string at various Music Shops in UK, but they either didn't stock them, or they were too expensive. Thank you Thomann!!

Wish I had found these years ago
Ancient and battered, 22.03.2021
I wasted 50-years playing round wound and being annoyed at the finger wear and tendency to stick when I want to move fast. These strings are just great, I can play as fast as I want to and for much longer.

Great strings
NFYoung, 27.08.2020
Wanted to change to flatwound and these are ideal.
Have tried several other brands on other basses, but these are excellent quality for the price.

La 4ª cuerda siempre suena desafinada.
Raul CB, 19.09.2019
Compre este juego de cuerdas para sustituir las de mi Höfner Beatle Bass de la serie Ignition. Las elegí por el sustancialmente menor precio que otras y porque, siendo de la misma marca, supuse que estarían bien estudiadas y probadas por el fabricante en sus instrumentos.

Tras su instalación se me presentaron dos problemas, uno de ellos insalvable:

1. Descompensación en el volumen de las cuerdas. Las cuerdas finas suenan mucho más fuerte que las gruesas. No es algo que no se pueda solucionar simplemente bajando las pastillas del bajo en la parte aguda y subiendo la parte baja. Con esta simple operación, todas las cuerdas suenan a un volumen equilibrado, entregando además un sonido cálido y especialmente apropiado para el instrumento.
2. La cuerda cuarta no afina de la manera más curiosa posible. Procedí a quintar el instrumento moviendo el puente del bajo de forma que, sin ser perfecto, el quintaje resultó bastante bueno, con ligeras décimas de desviación en algunas cuerdas. Sin embargo, la cuerda 4ª siempre suena desafinada. Aunque, según la lectura de varios afinadores electrónicos distintos, el quintaje es correcto y la nota (E) es la misma tanto al aire como en el armónico y pisando el traste doce, la cuerda SUENA desafinada al aire y especialmente en los trastes intermedios. Curiosamente, en algunas notas suena alta y en otras baja. Parece también que hay algún tipo de armónico raro disonando que puede ser el causante del problema. Completamente inaceptable.
Este problema me decidió a retirar las cuerdas del instrumento y volver a poner las originales anteriores.

En conclusión, aunque el sonido es bueno y el tacto es muy bueno también, recomiendo no TIRAR EL DINERO en estas cuerdas y comprar otras de calidad aceptable.
