I've been playing with low budget roundwounds for years. I'm in a steady gig now and decided to spring for a decent set of strings. These are great right out of the box. I find them faster than roundwounds, with thick lows and bright highs for when I solo. All around, a great string. I noticed the other reviews complaining about stickiness. I have found they get sticky as they get older, not when brand new, but maybe it's just me. I play a Washburn Vulture II bass, and these just seem to fit. I go with D'addario for all my strings: guitar, bass, and mandolin.

Great Sound, But Cant Trust 'Em

Been using these strings for a long while now. Last two packs I bought on seperate occasions though the core snapped on the g-string before i got them tuned anywhere close. Very upset....Read complete review

Been using these strings for a long while now. Last two packs I bought on seperate occasions though the core snapped on the g-string before i got them tuned anywhere close. Very upset. But if you can get a good quality set They overall sound is tough to beat!

      The BEST of both worlds

      Comments about D'Addario ENR72 Half Rounds Medium Bass Strings:

      Made the switch to these some years ago for my fretless JB to achieve some of that classic 60s sound. These are perfect for the rounder, thumpier (is that a word?) feel yet I don't lose the sustain of a round wound string. With the right EQ, they nail more contemporary sounds as well. Really a great all around string. I also use the medium scale version on my Hofner copy. They are certainly easier on frets and my rosewood fretless fingerboard. A win-win.

      Comments about D'Addario ENR72 Half Rounds Medium Bass Strings:

      Most of my basses have half wounds on them. Easier on my hands, sound great and gives you a cross between bottom end and some highs. At least for me!

        Comments about D'Addario ENR72 Half Rounds Medium Bass Strings:

        These strings have the upside of flatwounds (easy on the fingers) without the intonation issues and resonate better than flat wounds. Some reviewers say they are not smooth. It does help to play them a bit till they pick up a little "grease".

        Not a bad concept.

        By willg955

        from Michigan

        Comments about D'Addario ENR72 Half Rounds Medium Bass Strings:

        They really do have a good blend between the worlds of flat and roundwound. Nice to the touch but the tones are still somewhat bright and more mellow. But after about 3 weeks of rehearsals and 1 gig, they just sounded like dead roundwounds that manage to sound more dull than they normally do when they die. Now the Ernie Ball strings; I can usually make them last 6 weeks until they start to sound bad. I like how they are when they're still good. But they don't seem to last long.

        The secret of my success

        from Seattle WA

        Comments about D'Addario ENR72 Half Rounds Medium Bass Strings:

        To me the perfect string, warmth of a a flatwound combined with the snap of a round. I've run mine for a long time with no issues and have always loved the tone

        Comments about D'Addario ENR72 Half Rounds Medium Bass Strings:

        but seriously, I can't believe there are any bad reviews on here for these strings! they sound great and are very nice quality (as per usual with D'Addario Strings). I was expecting them to be a bit smoother but they still make a really nice sound and aren't as bright as a typical round wound string. Try them on a Rickenbacker!

        Terrible Strings

        By probassguy

        from Dodge City, KS

        Comments about D'Addario ENR72 Half Rounds Medium Bass Strings:

        I ususally don't feel compelled to write a bad review but these warrant it. These are possibly the worst set of strings I have ever used in my 44 years of playing. They not only sound like they're already dead a half hour after putting them on, they feel sticky, like you're pulling your fingers through pudding. I will stick with DR's or Sadowsky strings, no more testing! I do however love D'Addario guitar strings.
