And of course, juststrings.com has been my go-to string supplier for a long long time. They’re the best.
Killer fundamental if you play close to the fret board. You can get a great teaser type tone.
Oh and you can bend them like crazy.
Great vibrato as well.
I recently put together a Warmoth Jazz with an alder body and ebony fingerboard and thought I'd give them another try (along with a good setup) and am so glad I did: I got the action nice and low across the neck with zero buzzing (and I'm an aggressive player) and the smooth, supple feel exudes the most buttery tone with a minimal amount of exertion.
Point being: Make sure you really dial in your setup when transitioning to these strings before kicking them to the curb (I ended up having to relieve the neck way more than I thought I'd ever have to). They can be a bit finicky at first, but are well, well worth the effort.
I put them on all my basses. Nice bright tone for a flat wound and they last forever.
Worth the price.
- I've been using the JF344 set for about 3 years now. The tone and feel are wonderful. Very smooth to the touch. They seem to last a very long time. I still have the original set and they are still going strong. You can get real close to the Jamerson/Babbit tones of the Motown days.
- For me the only down side is that they feel floppy. It would be great if TI would release a set with .105-108 for the E-String. I would even buy a 5 or 6-String set if they had a larger string available. It seems they only offer .100's for all sets except for short scale.
Outside of this, I would still highly recommend them!
