Great tone and feel
February 28, 2015
Alas, a lighter gauge 12 string set for bass that really delivers!

I have a Dean Rhapsody 12 string bass and unlike the bulk of 12vers out there it's a long scale,2octave neck. Needless to say that the tension on a 12ver is pretty hefty so finding a set of strings that are lighter than the norm is a dream come true.
But dream gauge aside, the S.I.T.s really deliver on tone. A great shimmer in the high end without sounding harsh and a bright and punchy lower end without the mud. Mids cut through with a nice clarity and the over all harmonic quality is present and full. The feel is consistent across all fundamentals and octaves. Articulation on a 12 string bass can be problematic due to the 3 string per note/fret but the lighter gauge of the S.I.T.s make for an easier affair.
I've had this set on my bass for about 8 months now...still bright..punchy..sustain for days..and the tone delivers.
My only quip? I would like an even lighter set..really! I am used to the feel of a lighter set for my 4 string basses (30,50,70,90) and would love a set with respective octave strings in that gauge. But,that's a personal preference...

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."
