"The very best bass strings made, period!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Unsurpassed for any genre of music! Be aware that they have a rougher texture than you're probably used to so give yourself time to build up your calluses then you'll know what I'm saying.
Rough texture takes a little time
To get used to but it's definitely worth the little pain involved.
Ease of Use:
If you're a pick player you'll probably want to turn your treble down as these produce a very bright sound when asked. Thunderous lows and smooth mods that cut right through the mix. A few basic tone adjustments and you'll have it right where you like it
I've only had two E strings break in thirty years. Each time the strings were well over six months old and I was gigging every weekend in a metal band. They can definitely take a beating!
Never had a problem that required customer support
Worth every penny! My local music store wants $50 for a set of four and they get it from those that don't order online.
The Wow Factor:
Beautiful crimson threads on the headstock end makes a nice addition to most any bass's look
I've played bass for years and tried every string out there. There's something about the sound and feel of rotosound strings that can't be touched. The combination of great "piano-like" ring and the feel of these strings allows a finger player to have total control of your sound without any effects at all. I always get great compliments on my tone regardless of which amp or bass I'm using using. The one constant? Swingbass 66 Rotosound strings! Believe it!
