Ever since I replaced the pickups in my Squier VM Jazz Bass with DiMarzio Area J pickups, I have been trying different strings to get a good tone. These pickups sound different than the original ones, so the search began. This is only the third set of strings I have tried, and I have to say these sound beautiful (to me, anyway). They have a nice high end, but not a harsh sound. They don't squeak much at all, unlike most stainless steel strings. And I haven't noticed that cringe-worthy "zing". They don't "grab" my fingers, either, feel very smooth for rounds. Those "fat mids" I've read about must be the main reason for the nice tone. I discovered that I don't like strings that have a "scooped" sound. Why scoop out the best part? Though I haven't really tried to learn slap bass yet, I mess around with it sometimes, so I tried it with these strings. I get a nice tone out of that too! Who says you needed scooped strings for slap? I'll be leaving these strings on to see how long they last, before trying anything else. I have a feeling I will end my search here, these string sound great! (Your mileage may vary).
