Presto Ultralights

James6643, 29.12.2013
What a pleasant surprise when I put these strings on my bass. beautiful feel, surprisingly load. I wasn't expecting that. In the following five days I played in small rooms, large halls and outdoors. The strings were capable of keeping tune in all environments and I just have to comment again about the sound, really sweet and all the vibrations on my double bass felt as though they belonged to me. I could wax lyrical about these strings but they really need to be heard and felt to appreciate their exceptional quality

Nice and low tension, great for magnetic pickup

alib8, 16.07.2017
A bit lower tension than most solo string sets, and a bit higher than a bumped steel set.

Very easy on the fingertips. Sound is not as dark as you would expect, has some brightness/sustain to it, but not in a bad way. Acoustic volume is high for low tension strings.

Durability is good. Keeps in tune.

Works well with a magnetic pickup.

Would recommend if you prefer a magnetic pickup. For piezo pickups synthetic strings may be a better alternative for a darker tone.
