It could be that i've just had bad luck as i only tried 1 package of these strings. But when it arrived the E string sounded dead straight out of the package, it sounded like it already had been used for 2 years. The other strings sounded better but the sound wasnt for me. The sound was quite thin, not really much bass in them but loads of high crispy treble.
They are cheap strings and i think you get what you pay for. The sound wasnt for me but some people might like it. If you dont get a dead string in the package i think for the price the strings would be ok, not great but just ok.
I've been using these strings for years now, on 4-5-6 and Extended Range basses alike. I've always been happy with them, they don't last long but they're cheap and sound good, very bright but a bit too aggressive on frets and fingers if you're an aggressive player. Apart from their short life, another problem the chinese made string has is poor intonation: often I had to throw the bridge saddles back and forth to find a good intonation at the 12th fret and a few times I got bad sets with an unusable low E with an "inner buzz" when played open. Certainly bad news on a 30euros set but no big deal when you pay ?9.90. I'll keep using them for sure.
