  • Classic Tone

    As reviewed by tony James on 6/7/2013

    I have used these on on a Precision and Rickenbacker ...If you want to here these strings at work check out Thin Lizzy "Live and Dangerous" or Queen "Day at the Races"..or anything by Iron Maiden (although Steve Harris does use a heavier gauge)..These have a nice tight feel ..If you never have used flats it may take some set up adjustments to your bass, and they do put more tension on the neck but on the plus side do no damage to frets. They will also do a very good job with old school funk, R&B, country or blues. The slap tone is a selective tone, some will not like it others will love it.

  • Pretty Awsome!

    As reviewed by Fretless Sean on 4/6/2009

    I play a Squier fretless jazz bass(awsome bass) and these strings sound great from the moment you put them on till the moment you take them off. You really get an awsome jazz bass sound. The only complaints I have are that they are a little hard to slap and that after about 3 weeks the strings grip your struming hand. Sure these strings are a little expensive but it's worth it!

  • Great, Great & Great!!! Get it????

    As reviewed by MIGUEL CASTELLANOS on 9/17/2012

    I recently became the bass player for a band (I have been mostly a guitar player (acoustic and electric rhythm)). Since then, I have had to pay more attention to my Fender Geddy Lee Jazz bass (I have been using this one for recording). So, I decided to change the factory strings with this RS 77LD after doing lots of research and talking to several bass players and listening to recommendations from my friends at different musical instruments stores (including MF). All I can say is: Why did I wait this long???? WOW!!!No comparison!! I do not need to look for any other strings!! Unbelievable tone!! Deep, warm, great sustain!! With the factory strings, I could not use the bridge pickup because it was way too bright and always had to use the neck pick up with the tone set at around 2-3 (10 being brightest). Now with the RS, not only I can use the bridge pickup, I can set the tone to 10 without degrading the quality of the bass sound with excessive brightness regardless of the pickup I use. No wonder so many artists endorse these strings!!! The finger noise is significantly reduced (I still need to learn bass playing techniques). These strings are also more comfortable with my fingers. Now I need to buy a set for my Fender American Special P-bass I just got (for gigs). Do yourself a favor: buy these strings and close the book in researching bass strings. I just did!!
