  • Could have been great

    As reviewed by Ian Dize on 5/1/2014

    Got these for my Traben 5 string bass when I was experimenting with different brands. The E through G strings sounded great, and matched the glowing reviews that normally accompany Rotosounds. The B string, however, did not. It sounded so dull that it didn't even match the tone (and even volume) of the rest of the strings. It was so far off that at first I thought I'd left my old Dunlop string set on. On top of all of this, despite being labeled as long scale, the tapered section of all of the strings just barely passed the nut when I loaded them through the bridge (and I can normally do though body with other long scale strings). I'll probably just stick with DR strings from now on. In summary, the B string sounded like it didn't belong with the set, and if you have a long scale bass, this set isn't for you.

  • Rotosound none better

    As reviewed by Brian Rycyk on 11/25/2012

    I have been playing the bass for more than 40 years and tried almost every string brand, none compare to Rotosound. RS66 strings sound bright give my bass the growl and bottom end sound that is essential for my bass playing. All my 35 bass guitars are proudly equipped with Rotosound.
