Really Nice
Bowman, 30.06.2020
I had only been playing upright bass for about a year with the strings that came with the bass itself and wanted to upgrade the strings for something that was a bit more mellow and suitable for pizz jazz style.

It's really hard to gauge what any new strings will sound like because the instrument itself is a big factor so researching new strings is very hard and the strings are very expensive. After I found out as much as I could I decided to try these and I'm very happy.

In short they're much mellower than the steel strings I had and are much easier on my fingers. They are a bit more elastic and much easier to play and really made a huge improvement for the tone I was after. I'm very glad as you don't really know what they'll be like until after you buy them and install them which is an expensive gamble.

I will be buying these again when the time comes to replace them.

Pros: Lovely mellow tone. Easy on the fingers. Easier to play than steel strings.

Cons: Pricey. But worth the investment now I've heard them on my double bass.

a very good string...it has loads of thump on the front of the note for a good slap sound..the click is a little metallic but this is easily eq'd out..a really good old school pizz sound plenty of sustain but easily muted if you don't want it..the gauge and tension are ideal for steel string players who want a more old school sound..
