Too dead for a half-round. Fender flats are brighter.

D'Addario Bass Half Round Strings
Nice strings that I've been using for the last couple of years. They sound like a good set of "broken in", fairly bright roundwounds...but, with much less finger noise.

Great string for covering lots of styles
These are great strings to use if you need to cover a lot of different styles on one bass. They are basically flats that you can play rock with. You can go from warm, vintage or jazz-style tones to brighter rock styles just with your tone control. And if have multiple pickups, that just means even more tonal control and fine tuning.

Love/Hate Relationship
I love the sound and smoothness but hate the feel. Whatever the reason is for that sticky coating, I could do without it. If it wasn't for that I would give it 5 stars.

Half Rounds
It's the only string I'll use on my P or G&L L2000, just the right amount of brightness without all that string noise.

Smooth
I used these on my '75 Jazz bass and used to use flats for a nicer jazzy sound. My luthier suggested I go for half rounds for a cleaner sound. I have been using these for a couple of years now and I really like they way they sound. They have a very unusual feel right out of the box. Almost sticky. I guess it's the ground down windings, but as they stretch and break-in, they seem to settle down. Very smooth on the fingers, yet still have a nice ring to them.

"In 1976 D'Addario developed the Half Roundâ grinding process, which made available the "third kind of string." Each Half Roundâ string starts as an oversized precision round wound string and is centerless ground to a smooth, precise final diameter. With a tone between their round wound and flat wound peers, D'Addario Half Roundsâ offer the advantages of a smooth exterior string (reducing finger noise and fret wear) while maintaining some of the brightness of a round wound string."
