Great strings, great price

28.03.2016
SOUND: I use TI JF344 on my beloved Fender J Bass. They tend to be a little bright when you mount them. Let's say that in the first 20-30 hours I've experienced quite a roundwound-like sound. As time goes by (playing time of course!) I've seen that the timbre went warmer and warmer. But not like most of strings, which often goes duller and duller. The more you play them, the more it gets interesting and outstanding. Once you've passed the "trial stage" -which often irritates people, who change them way before the time- you'll have fantastic strings, perfect for recording: nice fundamental, cutting the mix as much as you want without too much post-production. Live sound is nice as well. One thing I noticed is that they tend to change (more than other strings) the personality of a bass guitar. TIs are so recognisable. Don't lean too much on "occasional" string reviews: they often show you the sound of brand new TIs which is quite different from the real one. If you want to hear real TI sound, check Carol Kaye or some other real long time endorser.

QUALITY: If you come from "popular" strings, you'd think "now that's luxury". Soft, smooth, silky they don't go out of tune. Last forever. They are pretty loose, if you are a punk rocker you're gonna bend them accidentally all the time and claim nonsensical tuning issues. But if you like tasty bendings (even microtonal ones) or vibrato it's another good feature for you.

OVERALL: Great strings, great price.

I put these strings on an Epiphone EB3 bass as I found it a tad uncomfortable/tight and boomy/indistinct with a few different roundwound brands. After rewiring the bass to 50s style wiring and still not quite achieving the clarity I was wanting I decided to try these TIs out as I'd read somewhere that Carol Kaye was a user - I thought I'd go for the fundamental and forsake clarity altogether. Really, who can argue with the bottom end of the Wrecking Crew?! These strings are fabulous - just superlative. They feel relatively low tension compared to the rounds I had previously installed, super comfortable and slinky, yet paradoxically the clarity is much improved. There's no metallic clang, just simply sublime string to string and low end frequency balance. Not as idiosyncratic as Pyramids, not the best for growl or zing. Just really, really fantastic flatwound punchy and thumpy musical performance. And they are immaculately wound too - totally flawless. They're aging beautifully, maintaining their string to string clarity yet sweetening/dulling on the top end in just the right way. Superb flats - highly recommended.
