Product Reviews for S I T Strings Electric Bass Taper Wound Nickel Long 5 String Light, .045 - .125, TNR545125L

S I T Strings Electric Bass Taper Wound Nickel Long 5 String Light, .045 - .125, TNR545125L5FretlessguySeptember 11, 2010I previously used the short scale version of these strings, so when it came time to change the strings on my five string fretted bass, I decided to give this set a try as well.They are very balanced, and smooth to the touch. They are not too light or too heavy tensioned. I used them with the body-through option on the bridge, and they were long enough to go past the nut with no problems. After playing them a couple of days I used them on a track we had been working on and they recorded quite well. Like the other SIT strings I have used in the past, they sound great. Their cost is very good as well. You get a lot of quality for the price.

Taper Wound

"Over the past few years, this design in strings has become more popular. Nickel electric bass strings made with the same precision and care as standard Power Wound, but with the cover winding recessed at the saddle on fourth and fifth strings. -- Long Scale"

The Company

"When the S.I.T. Strings Company was started in 1973, we wanted to be different from any other in the industry. Extensive marketing and large sales were never our primary goals. Due to the fact that we both had a love for the guitar and music, the company always reflected our enthusiasm for change. And change is what this company was based on, never being content with the standards of everyone else, but always striving for a higher level. By creating and inventing things that had never been thought of before, S.I.T. has always made strings that change things.

Quality control was also a major concern, and it was discovered long ago that only caring machine operators could be permitted to construct musical instrument strings. Each and every piece had to have the individual attention of the engineer, and our strings are still made this way today.

After S.I.T.'s humble start, it was not long before professional and amateur players alike were demanding the product on an international scale. Since that time, we have grown by leaps and bounds, and are always looking for ways to create new products and improve old ones.

S.I.T. is committed to, as well as thankful to, the musicians who made us what we are. We will always strive to stay the most progressive string company in the world.

Why not inspect our strings closely and prove this to yourself? Stop by for a free factory tour, and see them made while you wait.

The improvements and innovations have only just begun, and as we move into the next century there will always be room for improvement. We invite you to be a partner along that journey with us."
