    Comments about Rotosound BS66 Billy Sheehan Bass Strings:

    I love the Billy Sheehan Rotosound bass strings. I've tried just about every bass string on the market and this one seems to always have that bright midrange tone that I'm looking for. And these strings are very durable and don't lose their tone. The most recent pair I have on one of my basses now has been on for almost two months now and they still sound great after playing it everyday. I would highly recommend trying these strings out if you enjoy that bright midrange tone like I do.

        Comments about Rotosound BS66 Billy Sheehan Bass Strings:

        Billy Sheehan endorsed custom gauge string and I'm sold on them after a few times. Will continue to use them, unfortunate Guitar center in my neighborhood doesn't carry them in stock anymore. More Corporate bad decisions again.

        Comments about Rotosound BS66 Billy Sheehan Bass Strings:

        I've been a huge fan of Billy Sheehan's playing style and tone for many years. I either own or have owned many of the products that Billy has endorsed and like all of those products, these string are high quality and embody a tone that is unmistakably Billy Sheehan. They produce a nice clear bottom-end as well as a bright, punchy top-end. If I was to have to point to one minor flaw it would be that the strings felt rough to me in comparison to other strings I've used (hence only a 4 star rating). I would also have to mention that, because of the unusual string gauges, the string may feel awkward at first. That said, these strings are great step toward capturing that Billy Sheehan signature tone.

        BEST EVER!

        By BassMon

        from San Diego

        Comments about Rotosound BS66 Billy Sheehan Bass Strings:

        Unbelievable tone. Still the best tone I ever heard from bass strings. Once you put them on and start playing, they put you in that "zone". Fellow bassists know what I'm talking about. The zone where you think you can touch the sky. Been using Rotosounds for decades and they are still the best for that raw incredible complex tone.

        Comments about Rotosound BS66 Billy Sheehan Bass Strings:

        I have been using rotosound strings for years, ever sence I heard some of my rock heros like not only Billy, but also Rudy Sarzo, Steve Harris, I found them to have a good grip when I want to realy hammer on them and crisp when just rolling along. These strings are heavy where you need them and light were for me it seams almost faint when playing higher notes get a better punch when playing

        ATTITUDE and GROWL!!!

        By Bass1961

        from Cranston, RI

        Comments about Rotosound BS66 Billy Sheehan Bass Strings:

        I have been using Rotosound Strings since 1976. I Tried Many other strings but, Nothing Came Close to Rotosounds. I started using the Billy Sheehan Rotosound Strings back in 1989. I Always used Rotosounds for All of my basses. When I added a HipShot D-Tuner to one of my basses, I needed a heavier E string. Being a HUGE Fan of Billy's and also owning 2 Yamaha Attitude Basses, I wanted to try out Billy's Own Signature Series Strings. I LOVED THEM FROM THE FIRST NOTE I PLAYED!!! I now have ALL of my Basses set up for Billy's BS-66 Strings. IF YOU WANNA PLAY LIKE THE BIG BOYS, YA GOTTA HAVE THE TOYS!!! These Strings are GREAT!!! Anything Less than ROTOSOUND just WON'T CUT IT. Rotosounds are THE BEST SOUNDING AND LONGEST LASTING STRINGS ON THE MARKET. Great Quality, Great Sound, Great Value, Great Price. Every Set is Consistent in Sound, Quality and Unparalled Performance. TRY EM, YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK TO YOUR OLD STRINGS AGAIN!!! ROTOSOUND, THE ONLY SOUND YOU WILL EVER NEED, THE ONLY SOUND YOU WILL EVER WANT. PERIOD!!!
