These are great strings, though the "E" is pretty long for my EBMM Stingray fretless, but it doesn't work too badly. These are not a good choice (I learned this the hard way) for string-through body instruments. I always thought it made sense though, that the tapered sections over the saddles in a string-through arrangement would be ideal but it's not. The bass had some very strange resonance characteristics and the low strings felt floppy which made dampening them difficult.

I play all kinds of music. These strings are just the best. I have tried them all. They ring just right without sounding brassy. Also they are just the right tension to down tune a half step without getting sloppy.
