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.

        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.

                I have had no problem with the strings. I needed a cheep set of strings just to get by but I've found the brand I am sticking with. Over all just great strings.

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

                  I came across these a few years ago and decided to take a chance on them. I am so pleased I did... After many years of spending 2 to 3 times as much on a set of strings - this find was huge for me.
                  These strings are easliy as good as the Ernie Ball's I have been using for the past few years ( probably made by them or another big name brand anyway).
                  I change my strings frequently - I like a nice bright sound - and I am now able to stock up on these whenever they go on sale.
