sustaaaaaiiiiinnnnnnn!!!

Oliver aus B., 14.02.2014
As a rockabilly/rock'n'roll bass player I was always looking for strings, that are easy to play kinda nylon like but with real tone in it. I tried dozens of sets over the years from cheap weedwackers for about twenty bucks a set up to custom made "gut-a-like". In a string comparison in the german Musiker-Board.de I tested these strings to many other sets: [LINK] result is clear. This set puts a full mighty tone with lots of sustain to the bass and is still very easy to play. For beginners I would recommend light gauge/tension. Experienced players should try the medium set. They stay perfectly in tune, very reliable and make your doghouse sound impressive. They are also real good for pure acoustic playing (quite loud!). Try them, you won't be dissapointed.

Mediocre

Mike Devil, 09.11.2012
I bought these strings to slap, that was a mistake, sounds more like an electric bass,
(K & K rockabilly +) does not sound good in the Rockabilly area, especially the bass is very fast with these strings (so it is At least with me, first thought my customer is defective, when I changed the strings but it was good)
