Fantastic soft attack acoustic sound
tremblap, 22.04.2018
These bass strings are fantastic for people who try to get a very soft attack, quick decay, warm sound. It gives a vibe that sounds between a classical guitar and a double bass, very interesting and expressive.

Three caveats:
- The strings are slack and roll under the (picking) fingers. It needs some time to adjust.
- You need a piezo, as they won't word for magnetic pickup
- Because of the low tension, they produce a quieter sound.

Pros (why I cannot use anything else on my acoustic bass)
- the sound is unique, soft, acoustic, doublebass-y, lush, rich.
- the strings are consistent between sizes, and between sets

Bright, full bodied sound and easy to the touch
Zenz, 10.01.2020
Bought these strings to replace the stock ones that came with my acoustic roundback. What an improvement! The nylon core makes them so much easier to play, while the sound is even more contra-bass like. This guitar now earned a permanent spot in the living room, and gets grabbed whenever I want to play along without setting up an amp. with amp, the sound is even more impressive than with 'normal' strings: deeper lows, but with a pleasant range of rich overtones.

Wie immer bei Thomastik: überragende Qualität und alles andere Geschmacksache
Oliver Q., 08.06.2016
Die Saiten sind momentan auf meinem Doderer Stallion 5 Akustikbass und da sind sie auch genau richtig.

Am besten kann man sich den Unterschied zwischen diesen Saiten (Nylonkern) und "normalen" Akustikbass-Bronzesaite (Metallkern) vorstellen, wenn man an den Unterschied zwischen klassischen Nylonstring-Gitarren und Westerngitarren mit Stahlsaiten denkt.

Die Thomastiks sind etwas leiser als reine Steels mit Bronzebeschichtung. Auch ist der Saitenzug bei weitem nicht so hoch. Wer also mit klassischen Nylonsaiten aufgrund des niedrigen Zugs Probleme bekommt, sollte besser auf etwas anderes zurückgreifen. Wer den Sound mag und mit dem niedrigen Zug zurechtkommt, wird mit qualitativ sehr hochwertigen, sehr lange haltenden Saiten mit einem extrem runden und artikulierten Klang belohnt. Das Klangbild ist über alle 5 Saiten sehr ausgewogen und auch bei Akkorden "matscht" rein gar nichts. Das habe ich so bisher mit Saiten mit Metallkern nicht hinbekommen.

Also: Rocksongs unplugged geht auch anders und billiger. Sollte es allerdings etwas differenzierter werden und der Bass auch mal als Solinstrument herhalten müssen, sind diese Saiten für mich erste Wahl.

lostAél, 21.02.2020
Très bonne tenue équilibrée des notes, ainsi que du maintien de l'accordage à l'issue du jeux.
Le tirant gagnerai toutefois à être plus élevé, avec un chouia de masse volumique légèrement plus importante pour l'ensemble du jeu, ce qui gagnerai à priori une bien meilleure résonance pour les attaques de notes, surtout en acoustique.
L'aspect le plus rédhibitoire, c'est toutefois le choix du matériau (phosphore/bronze). Ceci pose problème du fait de l’oxydation inévitable, et ce d'autant plus lors du jeu (c'est particulièrement ennuyeux !).
De plus d'autres choix de matériaux possible serai aussi, voir plus judicieux pour la palette sonore, sa diversification, ainsi que concernant de ce fait la tessiture exprimée des cordes, du Si au Sol, me semble t-il.
A transmettre au fabricant ?
