I really like these strings and have been using them for nearly 10 years .The sound is clear ,full,and even across all strings with a nice touch ...not too raw . I have one complaint tho and would like to know if anybody else has had the same experience .I use these on a ' 95 Fender Am Std Thru Body Jazz Bass and find the G-string to be TOO SHORT and get just about 2 turns on the Tuner post...I like to get 3 full Turns .Stringing is NOT EASY and I have to be really careful how I put the string on otherwise it will keep slipping when tightening .The D,A,E strings all give 3 turns and have to be cut because they are too long but not the G it's just too short.
After E-mailing Thomastik -Infeld about this problem and sending the Strings back I received a new set with the same problem .I got a very noncommittal response saying they have had no other complaints and a second Mail was totally ignored . Thing is, I like them too much to stop using them and when G finally grips the Tuner post ,it does stay in tune but sometimes it's a long haul getting there and a 5 minute job tuns into a 40 min frustrating experience .So it's a case of living with the inconsistencies, but I dread every string- change.
