I have been a bass player for 30+ years and have gone through many sets over the years. I purchased a few sets of these because of their price, it was a cheap investment. They lose their brightness very quickly and there was two of three sets that had a dead string. I will not be trusting these in the future.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Electric 4-String Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings:

    Great inexpensive bass strings that I've been using for the past couple of years exclusively. Did ya know that these strings are made exclusively for MF and GC by D'Addario? Don't believe me? Call and ask. Killer strings that are just as good to me as their name brand counterpart. They hold up, They stay in tune, They feel fine and they're 9 pesos a set. What's not to like about them? Try a set and you'll see.

      I realized it was time for a change of strings. So I went out to find the cheapest strings and came upon these. I got them, them, installation was easy, tone was great, and playing felt great!

        This set of strings were purchased specifically to include in the sale of a bass, so I have not actually used them. I was very impressed with the price.

              I was given a bass that hadn't been used in a long time, put these strings on and the sound quality was pretty good. Can't beat the price.

                    I've played guitar for years. I've just recently started playing bass. I bought this set to replace the strings on a used Peavey I acquired. I'm impressed with the tone and playability. For the price, they are a good value.

                    Great strings for the price. They sound and play like new strings should. Minimal stretch. My last couple sets of much more expensive strings needed adjustments in tuning for some time. These were good to go after a couple stretches and have stayed tuned.
