Optima Electric Gold

GreatKingRat, 09.12.2009
My first impression is consistently positive. I've always played Rotosound 66s, but since I've got a jazz bass, the rotosounds do not fit my overall picture anymore. Consequently, I was looking for suitable strings for a fivestring Fender Jazz.

After some back and forth I ordered the Optimas and was thrilled from the beginning
The feel is great! Not as rough as stainless steels and even more comfortable to grip than nickel strings. Compared to elixir or similar coated strings but not quite as slippery, sticky (I never liked that on coated strings!)

The Optimas, which are available in the strengths 45-125, have a very pleasant pull and the slightly thinner E and B string has enough brawl and pressure on a standard 34 inch bass.

The sound is very special. Very, a lot of foundation and brilliant overtones, rather restrained in the mids (but I like it very much, because the Jazz Bass is well served anyway) but still with a lot of growl. One could attest an almost piano-like sound! Slidgeräusche occur very inhibited, which is due to the gold coating.

In retrospect, I can well understand why John Entwistle at the end of The Who liked these strings;) The strings are more likely to be found in the high-priced segment, but I will buy them again! After two gigs and just under a week in the rehearsal room, where the strings were really charged a lot, neither the coating has broken loose, nor has the sound changed so much! Top :) And on a black bass, of course, they look delicious high ten;)
