Hey, I've been playing bass for around two years and finally decided I was tired of the squeaky round wounds. Unfortunately for me, I really like that growly bass tone, which is a little more difficult to find in flat wounds, I also occasionally play slap bass. So I searched high and low for a flat wound with round wound qualities and I came across these. I'd played the "nylon flatwounds" on acoustic basses and likd them so I decided I'd give these a try. I love them, I've had them for a week and they sound great! They have the feeling of a soft nylon flat wound, but with the kick of a round wound. Plus your fingers won't slip off them. To be honest, you'll notice they're very slightly duller than your standard round wound, but only ever so slightly. My only complaint is that I need to take my bass into the shop to get the action raised slightly because they rattle a bit too much for my liking. I'm sad to see that these look to be discontinued, and I'll probably be getting a few more sets so that they can last me a while!
I haven't gotten to test a lot of strings for my bass, but when I purchased my new fretless, I picked up a set of these. Very good, upright bass sound. But if you need to do slap bass playing, they'll work alright for that too.I would highly recomend them to any one with a fretless as they won't leave scratches on the fretboard. and they produce some very nice tones when you slide with them. They will give your fingers a bit of "Rope Burn" on your fingers if you do a lot of sliding on the fretboard like I do.
If you are looking for something different, organic, natural, closer to an acoustic tone, yet still want some top end, you can't go wrong with these. Try 'em, you'll like 'em.
Had to file my nut to accommodate theheavier gauge, but it was well worthit. Great sound & feel. Try these out, you won't be disappointed.
I love these strings. They have the brightness of roundwounds without the brittle overtones. The black nylon wrap feels and looks great. Outstanding tone.
These strings are great. They last a long time and still sound cool. I just let them stay on my bass for six months so that they would mellow out. They feel great adn are easy to slide with, but the nylon also feel cheap (i.e. plasticky).
