I just put these on a 32" scale Squier Telecaster bass (with a Lollar pup in it!). Mid to short scale basses can get some weird floppy tones with a .105 E string. I use .45 - .105's on my long scale bass and couldn't figure out how to get my short scale to sound right. These just did the trick. Direct to my Ampeg Micro-VR they sound quite descent and stomping on a Tech 21 VT-Bass pedal takes these to the moon! Bright highs (I scoop the mids) and punchy lows. I am getting those piano harmonics and they let my bass respond to the low end properly now. My E string sounds great! I'm sold on these .45 - .100's on this bass! I hope they last a while but at this price, I am scooping up more in advance.

I bought these strings because they're cheap, now I see why. When I got the strings I put them on and was disapointed right of the bat. These strings were bright, but it was that bad kind of bright where it had a very toneless clanking. Once broken in these strings sounded very bad, (That's the only way I can describe the tone). Then within about 1 WEEK, they died leaving behind a trail of dull, horrid, uneven tone. I'd skip these if I were you.

          This is my brand, I like to have fresh strings so I buy inexpensive. I also like the two-pack. Put a set on, and have a set for back up.

                            The strings they replaced (also D'Aderrio's) at least 12 years old. Kind of bright tone right now but they'll mellow out soon enough.
