Not bad, but...

AC, 04.08.2016
I play all the kinds of music - Funk, Soul and Rhythm and Blues, So, I wanted some strings that sounded right for what I do but were a shade lighter on the fingers than my Thomastik Infeld (TI) Power Bass (.047-.107) for the quicker runs.

The strings arrived from Thomann in the customary plastic box and paper envelopes. Be aware that these are unsilked strings, which I hadn't picked up before.

On stringing up, the .040 G string broke immediately. I did inform Thomann, but received no response. So I'm currently running a TI .47 G string. I didn't want to give up on these Pyramids, so I've now gigged this particular bass 3 times (and 2 studio rehearsals) to give the strings a decent chance to play in.

Surprisingly, playing in that they have needed.

Only now am I getting a satisfactory tone from them. Granted, tone is a relative thing - one bassist's Nirvana is another's Dentist's appointment - but out of the box these were quite thin and twangy. Having played them in, they have now improved to a tone with more body and definition. However, I wouldn't have expected to need this much playing in with a Nickel-plated string.

To play, the strings have been as light as one might expect, and with less than usual string noise.

I will say that these strings are not especially loud - but then again, nickel-plated strings aren't designed to be especially loud. Even so, I'd say they are a little quieter than others I have had - most recently Rotosound's RS66LDN.

Overall, these are worthy strings, and interesting if you like to try different brands.

Happy playing!

Clear but also warm sounding strings.

Dr.P, 13.02.2014
This was my first try with Pyramid strings, so I expected nothing special. Now I really dig that sound. They sound clear but not too harsh ans have a great low-end. The durability ist excellent in my opinion, but I am not a player who always wants that zzzing fresh strings give you.

Try them, you won't regret it.
