What a pleasant surprise when I put these strings on my bass. beautiful feel, surprisingly load. I wasn't expecting that. In the following five days I played in small rooms, large halls and outdoors. The strings were capable of keeping tune in all environments and I just have to comment again about the sound, really sweet and all the vibrations on my double bass felt as though they belonged to me. I could wax lyrical about these strings but they really need to be heard and felt to appreciate their exceptional quality

great tone, good projection but wears out.

These strings are a good compromise for slap/pizz players.
The provide a good bottom end, are really easy on the fingers and still can be heard without amplification. But after two years of intense slapping, they started to lose their tension so that the drop in tonal height during the decay actually became a problem. You have to change them when this happens, or you will be playing slightly out of tune, no matter how good your intonation happens to be.. but until then they are a good choice, unless you want to use a bow: then you should look elsewhere.
