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.

                          Very bright sound, great modern sound for rock, jazz rock and slap. Great sustain too. Even across and up the neck. Excellent price!
