    This is the first time I actually bought Fender strings for a bass. I decided to get them to replace the strings that were on the used Fender American Precision V on YouTube in which the reviewer played them with the stock strings that originally come with them. All I can say is that they deliver that vintage, growly, P-bass tone with some great piano overtones from the top to the bottom string. As other players have concerns with the clarity and punch of the low B, so did I... Not anymore. NICE!

  • Fender Screwed Up A Good Thing

    As reviewed by Richard Attanasio on 7/18/2013

    Previous reviews of this product may have been for the older formulation of these strings. When you've used the same strings for a while you tend to notice when something has changed. These strings are not what they used to be. I used the 8250M strings for years until they recently changed manufacturer and now they are totally different. No more colored silk at each end, harder to wind on narrow tuning pegs. They have a rougher, stiffer cable-like feel providing no piano-string vibe from the instrument, and an over-toning quality that is nerve racking. The taper on the E string is not as thin either resulting in less springiness. Now they have colored ball ends. Who is this for? If you need colored ball ends to determine which string is which you shouldn't be playing the instrument. Very disappointed in Fender now, need to find another brand that will give me the punchy, grunty, clean driving tone I used to get with the older version of their strings.

  • These strings rock!!!

    As reviewed by Michael Campbell on 5/19/2010

    I recently recieved my dream bass, a Fender American Deluxe Jazz V. Coming from a 35" scale Spector Euro that had a great low B string, I bought these strings with the hopes that they would give me a better B for a 34" scale bass, they delivered! Great balance across all strings, with each string producing an even volume. These strings feel great and sound amazing. There wasn't anything about them that I didn't like. They slap well, produce nice warm sounds if you are a finger style player, and sound awesome and loud and bright with a pick. I was a big Rotosound user for the longest time. I really never even thought of buying Fender strings. I will be buying a lot more of these very soon. You should check them out!
