JustStrings.com Nickel Plated Round Wound .105, Bulk Pack of 6, 105NR3Josh MyersMay 16, 2011I think the price is just fine, but here's my big beef with this string, and the low B-string: The wrappings on the tail of the string right next to the ball at the bridge on both of the E and B strings that I purchased were very messy and not neatly wrapped. As such, the strings widened a bit here... just enough so it was very, very difficult to get them to stay in the bridge of my Warwick Thumb. The strings went in just fine on my other basses, but the bridge on the Thumb is a bit differently made. Usually, I specifically seek out piano-string style tapered cores, but normal strings always worked in the past with a bit of work. These weren't the same. They were a big pain to keep in the bridge, and they popped out very easily. As such, if you have a more standard bridge on your bass, these strings are a decent deal and will work fine. However, if you have a bass that works better with taper-core piano-style bass strings, these will probably give you a headache.
