Bought to go on a scrappy student bass I'm very pleased with how nice these strings have turned out. I can't speak for bowing but for Jazz pizz. they can put out a good volume and have a pretty even round sound all over the range (except the open G which has a little too much zing on it).
They're not noticeably wider than plain steel, so there was no need to file the slots in the bridge or nut any wider, and personally I find the slight powdery feel of the nylon tape nicer than steel to play on.
And just as a little after thought, they look very slinky.
Great strings for this price. I was looking for budget strings for my cheap plywood double bass and these must be one of the best pizzicato strings at this price range. E,A and maybe D string too are good and sounds very mellow but the G string sounds a bit too metallic for my taste. Not as mellow as the rest of the strings. All in all good strings for pizzicato. Haven't tried arco.
