I have never liked the feel or sound of any acoustic bass strings. They sound like a regular guitar. So I decided to give regular strings a shot. Theres no problems so far and they have a total full bass sound.
ok this is what happend. the strings when i bought it had the most amazing tone, it is bright when u want to then become bright and "not" bright when u want its just equalize ur bass and the amp. now the problem. i play with a multieffects zoom B1 and i "made" or equalize a effect to sound how i want and in the first month it sound really cool but then it started to distortion the sound and when i change the effect is the same distortion that become really annoying when you are playing "light or soft" music, im sure its not tha amp or the bass because my bass is a new fender and that happen too when u r playing direct "bass-amp" and my amp is a new laney so if u want thiis strings buy the "doble pack" because after 1 or 2 months u are gonna want to change al the string set for a new one.
These strings are the first ones I have bought. I do a lot of different tunings on my Thunderbird, and these stay in tune and in shape for atleast a year if not more. All I have to say is I love these strings and I may need to get more.
I've been playing bass for 25+ years, I have bought cheaper and more expensive strings. Yet can only be satisfied by D'Addario. The intonation is second to none and they stay in tune the best.If you do alot of walking up/down the neck, stick with .045-.105 It keeps the string size in even intervals. You will know the difference. For slappin' you will love the crispness of these strings. In my studio, if a bass man comes in with a dull sound, I have them put these on and they are always hooked. Do yourself a favor, don't waist time on any other set of strings...
