These strings have the uncanny ability to make even the most perfectly set-up bass twang, buzz, and warble. And forget about special tunings. Essentially, the strings have an extremely bright, flabby tone that gets downright twangy and is well suited to use in a jug band. I basically had a set of some unknown brand on a bass that I'd just purchased, and all I knew is that they'd been on there for at least 6 months. The gauges appeared to be the usual medium, so I changed them out with a cheap pack of Epis. Mistake. Before Epiphone, my tone was dead, but I had no buzz anywhere. I used the old strings to set the action, truss, and neck angle -- no problems. After Epiphone, BZZZT-TWAAAAAANG-BVRRRRP. The inevitable strike of the proverbial "flab." I shudder at the thought of what a brass string nut would do in conjunction with these. Unless you're in a country/bluegrass band and actually WANT some twang, I'd have to advise against these strings, unless you tune to F# or something. Get D'addarios instead if you need bang for your buck.
They're alright strings. I've got them on my T-Bird Bass right now, so luckily the bass makes up for the low-end that the strings lack, but they sound pretty cheap on my P-Bass. Comparable to Fender strings.
I'm all for thrifty spending, but I must admit, I really wished I had spent the extra $$ on my last set of strings. It might be based on my preference, but I thought these were the worst strings I've ever played with. Then again, look at the price, you get what you pay for.
