    Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

    Hey there i've been playin bass 27yrs if i have to say and i always look for durability. I play with a pick being i learned guitar first then switched to bass so i'm not easy on my strings. I've tried the expensive kind and some reason break them, seems to me the cheap ones always last. I like the dunlop and have them on all 3 of my basses and am pleased. Now the guy makin a comment on breaking the g string? I would suggest lookin deeper like maybe you got lil notches in your bridge saddle that need a lil filing down. Experience is to always look at that when you change strings and i bet you will have less of that issue. Point is it's only 1 string and that same string breaking. Hope he reads this LOL! Give em a try.

    G String Breaks Constantly

    By Jason

    from Chicago, IL

    Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

    I've been playing bass for around a year and I like to slap and pop hard on my bass (Red Hot Chili Peppers-style). I bought two sets of these strings because Guitar Center was had a sweet deal on them. Put them on and they sounded lovely. And then after roughly 2 weeks, my G string snapped while I was popping. I was forced to put on the G string from the second pack, which then broke after another two weeks of playing. I expect better from my strings. I'd recommend a set of D'Addario's. I had a set of those on for around 5 months before I had a G String break.

    Absolutely great sound,but

    By Bryan

    from chattanooga,TN

    Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

    I put a set of these on my old P bass about a month ago,and was blown away by the tone and sound. Now here comes the bad part. That "killer" sound only lasted for two gigs and went deader than a rock. Now after 37 years of playing I have used every brand on the market, and can assure you that's it is common for all string companies to make a "dud" now and then. I don't know if I will use these bass strings again, however I will say the Dunlop NPS strings light gauge 9-42 I put on my old Stratocaster are fantastic ,and will probably be all I use from now on for electric guitar strings. I'm giving a thumbs up and five stars to Dunlop electric guitar strings. As far as their bass strings, I would have to try another set to make a decision. I will say if the next set of bass strings is like the first, I'll have to vote thumbs down.

    Great Feel, Great Tone, Great Strings!

    By craig skoney

    Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

    I've been playing bass since 1980. I have tried just about every string made, since then. I'm very happy with the Dunlop nickel sets. They aren't as bright out of the package as some other brands, but they settle into a wonderful, full, punchy, growl that suits most styles and shines for rock and classic pop. I have these on two of my basses. They last a long time for me. It's normal for them to sound good (good harmonics/not all thump) for a few months or better. If you need a constant glassy sheen on top, pass these by. That's not what these strings are about. They will, however, produce an excellent, classic slap tone, even after they settle in. They sparkle when they're new, but they lose the extreme "zing" within a couple days. The bottom line for me is they are versatile but classic sounding, they speak well in the mid-range, they last, and they don't hurt your wallet. I'm a fan.
