Perfect for the bassist who wants a gut-like string but needs to use a magnetic pickup
Magnatron 26.11.2015
Having switched from a piezo to a magnetic pickup for stage volume/feedback reasons, I needed to switch from synthetic strings to steel core. I don't particularly like the sound or fell of all steel G and A strings, so these steel core, nylon wrapped strings are a really good compromise.
They have the same feel & guage as synthetic strings, with almost the same sound, but they work really well with magnetic pickups.
Sound-wise, they're not as mellow as synthetic or gut strings, but it's as close as you'll get and still be able to use a magnetic pickup.

Used in swing music style
Anonymous 04.11.2016
I use this strings mostly to play Swing, Big Band style.

They are super comfortable to play with, making it possible to endure long gigs without any discomfort.

The projection I get from these is considerable if we take into account the lower tension. Still for gigs of more than 50 people, amplification would be recommended.

I was expecting a sound a little closer to gut strings, but overall I'm happy with it.

Buenas cuerdas
ratrocker 10.03.2021
Muy buenas cuerdas, se nota la calidad de su construcción, tienen un muy buen sonido, aunque en mi contrabajo 1/2 el timbre es un poco metálico cuando toco con slap. Su sustain es muy bueno. Muy recomendable para tocar rockabilly y bluegrass

Great slap strings
Nile the Rev Robbins 23.03.2021
Bought these for my second bass I use for jazz and blues, but I was amazed how good they are for slapping too.
Great all round strings, I would say though, if you are a beginner go for the ultra light gauge.
