dom't let the cost fool you

By Mark

from tulsa

Very Good Strings! Don't let the price fool you. There was very little if any high frequency sound loss, like most Flatwound Strings. The Fender 9050L Flatwond Bass Strings Have a pure natural sound and feel. I could talk all night on these strings. Very little effort required when fretting. My Choice! Five Stars!

Best Bass Strings Available! ! !

By Ken Landis

from Pennsylvania

These strings are exceptional for all styles of bass from jazz to Beatles to Merle Haggard. They are especially great for songs like "Come Together" where you have to slide up to the notes without the string buzz.

Fantastic Set of Strings

By ToneDog

from Baltimore, MD

I recently purchased a hollow-body Hofner Violin bass knock-off, and the recommendation was for flatwound strings to obtain that upright sound. The outcome was an incredible booming sound and a very sleek feel on the neck. I was so impressed that I bought a another set of these babies to string up my Spector. I was expecting the comfort factor, but I was absolutely blown away by the sound. Not only was there a great low-end tone, but the brightness was also there on the highs, something that flatwounds are supposed to be lacking. I used to play ML gauge Bass Boomers, and have permenantly made the switch to these light gauge flatwounds. I was expecting to be happy playing the jazz tunes with these strings, but they'll also let you rock as hard as you're willing. Killing in the Name is one of my favorite songs to play, and these strings deliver that as well as any on the market.
