Being a long time user of Ken Smith strings on other basses I originally bought these to put on my Spector Euro 5LT. Unfortunately because of the silk wrapping at the ball end they would not fit. I ended up putting them on my Ibanez Portamento fretless 5 and it woke that basses tone up. I had always played flats on it before and temporarily tried several sets of rounds and was never satisfied with the feel or tone. Now the Portamento has plenty of low end a throaty mid range bark and smooth highs. I cant recommend these strings enough...

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.
