Being that I mostly play classical and latin on my basses, I had specific expectations from these new strings.
I purchased a set for my fretted bass, and was very, very pleased. I then purchased another set for my fretless.
Having never used anything other than roundwounds before... I was worried, but my fears were unfounded.
The smooth feel of these beautiful strings, as well as the warm tone instantly converted me. Warm, yet not 'muddy' at all. In fact I would say that the lowest notes of my 6-string instruments are even more clear, possessing a clearer fundamental than I'm used to. Add to this a delicious liquid warmth to the highest notes that is totally what I was looking for instead of the 'brashness/twang' of roundwounds.
The slick feel of these take a bit of getting used to, and the tension is a little higher that I'm used to as well. But now, I'm extremely comfortable with this new set-up.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you!
