Great tone and affordable price!
If you love short scale basses, then you have to try a set of these Fender nickelplated bass strings. Just because the scale is short doesn't mean your tone has to be!

I put these on a japanese reissue mustang bass. Already half dead tone when you first put them on. Worse, the a string keeps popping out of the nut. It seems only .70 gauge works as an a string on a mustang bass. Go with the rotosound funkmasters.
My prior experience with Fender strings was with the 9-gauge electric guitar strings that come standard on many of their guitars. Worst strings I've ever tried. Swap those immediately!I remember being impressed with the tone of my Mustang Bass when I played it in the store. Unfortunately, based on my past Fender strings experience, I immediately changed them for another brand. Mistake! I have not been able to replicate or exceed the tonal range or string-to-string balance of the Fenders with sets from D'addario or DR. I'll be going back to the Fender strings next time I change!
There aren't any of these strings around in shops where I live, and had to wait a month to get them ordered through Guitar center. I guess they are discontinuing them.
