Product Reviews for Ken Smith Electric Bass Burners NPS Nickel Plated 5 String, .040 - .120, AA-BBL-5

Ken Smith Electric Bass Burners NPS Nickel Plated 5 String, .040 - .120, AA-BBL-54KwinterAugust 14, 2009Love these strings! Great consistent tone, last forever, and have an awesome slap tone! I've tried many other strings, but always come back to these - there are other strings that cost more, but do not out perform Ken's! My only gripe, is that the low B string has the felt starting too low on the windings for my 35" scale basses and I always have to trim some of it back so that it's not resting on the felt in the nut slot to dampen the sound. Ken if your listening; fix this please! The wind length should be the same on the low B as the others for us "Longer Scale" guys!

Bass Burner NPS Series

The Bass Burners NPS, featuring our custom string design, is a round wound nickel plated steel string. These are the brightest nickel strings that you will find anywhere with the added advantage of longer fret life due to less fret wear than with normal steel strings. 38" winding length except .120 and .130 which are 36.5" winding length.
