Silencers Rock!

I have used the above on my Lakland 4-94 Deluxe for two months now. Amazing thick tone, sustain just like my RB Nickels, and they are quieter and easier on the fingertips. I like SIT Flats but wanted more gnarl like a roundwound, and these do the trick. They seem to last forever, as well.
SIT are the only strings I have used for the last ten years, on all my basses. Try them. You will love them.

For the price of these bass strings you can't go wrong. They are really good. It has a real deep sound just what I was looking for. As you play the other strings stay put. I had set of D'addario on EXL220-5 and I was not happy with them because when I played G string for instance, the other strings would echo and
I did not like that. These string are my string from now on. Go ahead and give it shot. I did and I don't regret it.

I bought a new Godin A5 SA semi acoustic fretless bass. It came with D'addario flatwound strings. The original strings sounded bright enough; surprising for flats. But round wounds have a different attack and sustain that I am used to. The problem was, I didn't want to tear up the ebony fingerboard. So, I began looking for something else that would give me the sound I wanted without the damage .
Juststrings.com has the best selection of bass strings I've found. When I found these silencers I read the reviews and decided to give them a try. I'm glad I did!
Silencers really do sound pretty much like a nickle roundwound because that is what they are, only flattened out on the playing surface. I haven't seen any noticeable excessive wear from them, and the tone and response is much closer to what I wanted from the Godin bass. I already have the upright sound covered. So I wanted to move away from that "tubby" kind of sound, and get something in between a "Jaco" tone and a acoustic bass. Did it!! And there's another benefit as well, there's much less string noise from the silencers. Also, by the way, you can even get a good slap tone/response with the silencers. (Not the brightest) SIT had a good idea, and this is an excellent product.

These strings are what I've been looking for. I've tried a bunch of flats and rounds and these are great for me. I do wish there were more options in 5 string sets

SIT Strings for Fretless Bass
January 26, 2010
I teamed these bad boys up with my G&L L-2500 fretless. They are still just about as bright as the round wounds from the factory, but don't scratch the ebony fretboard as bad. A heck of a lot easier on the fingers, too, which was a nice bonus! My fingertips don't get shreaded like they do with round wounds.

Bright tone with a fairly smooth feel. Stays in tune very well. Used on fretless, they don't dig into the fretboard much.

SilencerÔ Bass

"As in the Silencer Acoustic String, this new Silencer breaks the barriers of electric bass string technology. The process of Inverse String Winding compresses the outermost part of the cover wrap leaving the internal structure of the string intact. Exclusive to S.I.T., this design produces a silky feel which is easier on your fingers and frets, but explodes with a round wound sound! Perfect for fretless basses. -- Long Scale"

The Company

"When the S.I.T. Strings Company was started in 1973, we wanted to be different from any other in the industry. Extensive marketing and large sales were never our primary goals. Due to the fact that we both had a love for the guitar and music, the company always reflected our enthusiasm for change. And change is what this company was based on, never being content with the standards of everyone else, but always striving for a higher level. By creating and inventing things that had never been thought of before, S.I.T. has always made strings that change things.

Quality control was also a major concern, and it was discovered long ago that only caring machine operators could be permitted to construct musical instrument strings. Each and every piece had to have the individual attention of the engineer, and our strings are still made this way today.

After S.I.T.'s humble start, it was not long before professional and amateur players alike were demanding the product on an international scale. Since that time, we have grown by leaps and bounds, and are always looking for ways to create new products and improve old ones.

S.I.T. is committed to, as well as thankful to, the musicians who made us what we are. We will always strive to stay the most progressive string company in the world.

Why not inspect our strings closely and prove this to yourself? Stop by for a free factory tour, and see them made while you wait.

The improvements and innovations have only just begun, and as we move into the next century there will always be room for improvement. We invite you to be a partner along that journey with us."
