Great price and quality
OlofMa, 16.04.2018
I was looking for short scale strings for my Gretsch G2210. I didn?t wan?t to spend a minor fortune for good strings and stumbled across theese. Based on reviews i took a chance and pressed buy.

I?m actually suprised over the quality and sound. They got a nice feel to them. I find them smooth and with very little finger noise. Mounted on my short scale Gretsch they go along great.

I really nice detail to them is that they have green silk. Like Epiphone who have red on the original strings. It adds a nice touch!

Good quality for a low price. Good sound and feel. Great buy if you don?t like to put to much money on strings.

This is the first time,i wanted to actually try Hofner short scale strings for my Hofner bass(and definatelly the last time).
Well,im not impressed.The sound is ok,but the quality is just poor.Purchased 4 packages aprox month ago,and i broke 4 strings already.I use Dunlop tortoix 0.73 (the yellow ones) plectrums.I play every night in Beatles tribute in Mallorca,and i need reliable set of strings. Tried it and it failed for me.After a week of using,they become very hard to play,and i need to use tons of fast fret to be able to slide my fingers on them.Not recomending.
BTW,Thomann is a great shop

Great VFM.

When it's time for a change, these strings will go on a (almost new but new to me) Hofner Contemporary series Verythin bass, 500/7 short scale.

The instrument's almost certainly fitted with them anyway as the feel of the strings is the same and they both have the dark-ish green silks.

As a dedicated flat wound string user, I'm surprised how good they are. One thing that's immediately obvious is the much reduced finger noise and relatively smooth feel.

Anyone using Hofner short scale basses would be well advised to buy a pack if they are ordering from Thomann, simply because of the price!

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
