Yet so far I did not decide to spend that much money on a set of new bass strings. As I realized that my Rotosound Swing Bass Set lasts shorter and shorter with its freshness and the costs exceeded I decided to buy the Elixir Stainless Steel set for my Jazz Bass. When you take the string out of the paper you realize at first that they feel very comfortable and not that sharp as many others of this category do. Strung up the instrument had to be adjusted. These strings are harder to pull than others I tried before. So when you decide to play them be aware to take some time to get common with the strength, even if my Roto set was a 105, too. Once getting comfortable with it you will love it! Because of the Nanoweb layer they may not sound that sharp as a new set of Rotosound strings but also not that flat as when the Rotos are played. All in all a very great set of strings which someone should try who wants to have some which last longer and sound fresh.
I bought this set of strings a loooong time ago, because I was searching for a set of stainless strings for bass that would last for some time. Well, let me just tell you that I kept those strings for years, I don't even remember how many now, and they still had that twangy, bright metallic tone to them....even too much if I can say! I replaced those only because I wanted my bass to sound completely different at some point. Pricey but if they are your thing...they will last!
