I feel like Glenn Ficker will love me for this review
Cheeseman, 03.10.2017
Changed the strings on my Stagg Jazz bass copy that I got from a friend. Strings were rusted and old and the fretboard needed to be cleaned up. When I finally put the strings on, I immediately went to recording. I am using these in E-standard to Drop C and these strings have the exact clarity and attack that you'd expect with the extra thick strings. The end bit of the low e-string doesn't fit through my bridge all the way though.... Play wonderfull, sound really good and the only real pet peeve is the extra wounding on the end of the E-string. Would recommend if you are an awesome bass player or a producing guitar player and have a power drill for your bridge.

One of the best!
Pimbrukas, 19.02.2018
Have been using these for several years already.
Really love the gauges - .110 is not really standard for many companies.
As I play in drop tunings - in this case Drop B. The string get a bit floppy, and some might prefer more tension - But for me it is perfect tonewise. The B string is thick and heavy sounding, yet still have bright overtones - something that would be missing from .130 string.

My favourite strings. Had them on some basses for years and they still sound good! E string a bit dull sometimes due to the thickness

Nice, punchy sounding strings!
MikaelP, 28.07.2014
I’ve been playing bass now more than 15 years and I’ve tried a DOZENS of different labels and staring gauges.
Everything from flatwound, nickel to stainless for both 4-, 5- and 6-string basses.
I like the Ernie Ball EB 2831 Power Slinky a lot. With this particular set I was aiming to go for the following tuning: C#-G#-C#-F# and I think they do their job splendid.
Right of the package they are very bright, almost like Stainless. But after a couple of hours of practice and playing gigs they settle with a nice, warm but also a punchy sound.
I will defiantly continue to go with these instead of my usual Stainless for a while.
Recommended!
