    What else can I say but my strings at my kind of price.
    These strings have the vibrance and tone that I need since I play several kinds of music. I use a V Bass Pro box for tweaking but could easily just play straight into a direct box for all venues from church to clubs to studio. Even when they get a little old and the intonation varies a bit, they are still sounding great.
    My strings on my Fender Zone bass give me such a range of sounds that I am thoroughly convinced I never have to try another type unless someone gives me some to try.
    Since I change strings at least once a month, finding the very strings I use and have been buying for years at better than half off, is one of the best things I have ever experienced through Musician's Friend. For Christmas and my birthday in February, my main gift suggestion from family is for bass strings. I have a close relationship to a local music store who always gives me the best deal he can. I usually get 2 or 3 sets between Christmas and my birthday but this year I only got one set since the economy is so bad. When I checked MF for a deal and saw the price of 19.95, I was going to order them immediately and had actually started the process when I discovered that price was for a double set! I ordered them and received them in about 3 days. Amazing! I'm set for at least 5 months now and will order again when I see such a deal.

    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.

                These are great strings for the price. The tone and life of the strings are certainly strong points. Where the strings lack a bit for me is in tension. They are a bit more "floppy" than some of the more expensive strings I have used. Overall, I'm sure I will buy them again at some point simply because of the quality you get for the price.

                  Been through several brands, and settled on D'addario. Best price point to tone value. Quality of the strings is consistent through the life of the strings. Rarely break even under a heavy hand.

                  Ordered them the first time due to price. That was years ago. I loved them the 1st time I used them and have no intentions of changing. They last long, stay in tune, and sound great. Best bang for the buck in the business.
