Product Reviews for Ken Smith Electric Bass Burners NPS Nickel Plated 5 String, .045 - .130, Taper Core B, AA-BBM-5N

Ken Smith Electric Bass Burners NPS Nickel Plated 5 String, .045 - .130, Taper Core B, AA-BBM-5N5JBJune 23, 2011Use this set on a 96' Jazz Bass Deluxe 5 USA with Bart electronics and PUs and stainless medium frets, through body stringing. Very accurate and even toned with tension a bit on the high side which is good for 34" scale 5 strings. Taperwound low B really helps. Better than average durability. Excellent for finger style funk players who like ghost notes. Of the MANY brands I've tried these are of the highest quality comparable to Sadowsky strings (the only other string I will use). Great product.

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.
