I play bass in a very chordy, high end fashion, almost like a classical guitar. I play a lot of harmonics, and high end stuff, so I wanted strings that deliver a sharp, clear, and crisp sound to me; not the typical "fat bass" sound that every Red Hot Chili Peppers fan wants to hear. These are perfect for me. I love these as a soloist, but if you're looking for something to slap or play low end stuff to then these aren't for you. These have a relatively good bass sound, but I think they're all about clearly expressing individual notes, rather than power.

I bought a set of these looking for something a little brighter than what I was already using. I was smart enough to also buy a set of my usual strings. I played the Ernie Balls for a couple of hours, but my mind was made up in the first song. These are junk!!!! Very muddy. Save your money, buy something else.

    Bought these to replace the strings that came with my new bass. These sound much better than the ones sent with it. Used in a small church group setting. Love the sound!

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2834 Super Slinky Roundwound Bass Strings:

      In my opinion these are hands-down the best strings for electric instruments. They feel great, sound great, and last forever. The price is just an added bonus! I don't mind paying extra for a product if it really is better. But, I have yet to find strings that work better for me, even the ones that I've paid a great deal more for.

        I have used other string and some are not bad , However I like these the best . I have been using them for years now and always have extra on hand. I am a little hard on strings because I do play alot . I ask for them as gifts from my kids they never know what to get me , this is a perfect gift.

          I had packs of another brand of strings (which I received for free) and used them for years. That was a waste of time - Ernie Balls from now on...

            Id say these strings are high end. I think they start to lose tone at about 2 and a half months for me which is better than most strings.

              Durable good quality strings. They bring out the overtones of the bass. They're gritty well rounded tone. They maintain their tone for a good while.

                I'm currently using these on my Epiphone T-Bird Pro and I love them. They have just the tone I was looking for. I've used D'iddario in the past but prefer these. They are very nice strings for the price.
