  • perfect for short scale basses...

    As reviewed by jason fifield on 5/23/2012

    the item description reads "short scale" because it's not made for a fender bass VI, which has a lot of string behind the bridge. i recently converted my rumley baritone esquire(28" scale) for holding D-D(concert Bb) tuning, and these are perfect. i usually prefer a flatwound, but for bass vi tunings, these are great.

  • the ones that fit sound great.

    As reviewed by Chris on 8/26/2009

    I really like how these strings sound, quite bright but not too metallic. I did have issues with fitment. The B and e strings were barely long enough to reach the tuners on my Fender Bass VI and way too short to get even a single wind on the post. I sent them back and the next set had the same problem. I'm under the belief that these strings were designed for the Ernie Ball Bass Guitar alone. It's disappointing since they have such a nice tone...

  • short strings

    As reviewed by GABRIEL GARAMILLO on 9/2/2013

    I am not sure what bass these strings are meant for but the E string was about an inch too short at least. didn't even bother unwrapping the rest of them. just boxed them up and sent them back. wish there was an app that actually told you what strings fit was bass guitars.
