As always with Thomastik: outstanding quality and everything else taste
Oliver Q., 08.06.2016
The strings are currently on my Doderer Stallion 5 acoustic bass and they are just right.
The best way to imagine the difference between these strings (nylon core) and "normal" Akustikbass-Bronzesaite (metal core) is to think of the difference between classic nylonstring guitars and Western guitars with steel strings.
The Thomastiks are somewhat quieter than pure steels with bronze coating. Also, the string pull is by far not so high. So if you get problems with classic nylons strings due to the low pull, you should have a better grip on something else. If you like the sound and get along with the low pull, you will be rewarded with high-quality, very long-lasting strings with an extremely rounded and articulated sound. The sound is very well balanced over all 5 strings, and even with chords "mats" is absolutely nothing. I have not done so with strings with metal core so far.
So: Rocksongs unplugged is also different and cheaper. If it is a bit more differentiated and the bass also as a solinstrument must hold, these strings are my first choice.
