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!
Great fundamental with enough top end to keep from sounding dead. The feel of the strings is icing on the cake. Silky smooth with low tension that make them play like butter, yet even the B string is thunderous.
They're much more flexible than other flats I tried with a much smoother, 'softer' feel. The flexibility is almost like rounds, which made the transition really easy.
The tone on a '51 P-bass reissue is really nice. Lots of fundamental thud, but enough upper partials so the detail isn't lost. They last a really long time, too. Excellent strings. Highly recommended.
