I bought these strings because I was looking for a better sound and let me tell you I am very impressed with them. I love the high end of them and yet you still get all the bottom end as well. I put these on a Schecter Stiletto Custom 5 string.

Just received strings and put on bass. Took off E/B Slinky. Big mistake. Strings have good tone but very very heavy. After installed, Tuned and jammed for about 15 minutes, took off strings. If you like heavy strings, My opinion these are for you.

    Awesome strings, but not really the sound I want.

    Comments about Rotosound RS665LD Roundwound 5-String Bass Strings:

    I bought these strings for my Squier Affinity Jazz Bass V. When I put them on, they had SO much growl. It was crazy. That was a month ago, and they're still growlin' away. I'll probably use these for a few more months and go back to Fender 7250's. These strings sound really cool if you're looking to sound like Geddy Lee or John Entwistle, but I'm not so much.

      Comments about Rotosound RS665LD Roundwound 5-String Bass Strings:

      No other strings have "that sound". I've been playing for 34 yrs.and I've tried other strings in the past, but I'm done wasting my time and money. For me, Rotosounds are the best.

      Best strings I've ever used

      Comments about Rotosound RS665LD Roundwound 5-String Bass Strings:

      I've played on nothing but these strings since I "discovered" them about 4 years ago. These strings are nice and meaty, and they give a well-balanced, articulate tone that lasts a long time and doesn't die out quickly like e/b or ghs.Over the years, I've used e/b slinky's, GHS boomers, D'Addario's, and Elixir, and, until I started using these, never really had the tone I was looking for. These are definitely worth it.

      Great strings-recommended

      Comments about Rotosound RS665LD Roundwound 5-String Bass Strings:

      I've played Rotosounds for over a year. I played DR hi-Beams & GHS progressive steels for many years, but I've found these Rotosounds hold a more consistent sound over a long period of time (i.e. they don't dull out quickly). As far as tone, these have a clear focused & meaty tone, real nice & real useful for many situations. They also have a great texture to the touch. My set-up is: Spector 5 string, Heartke Head, Ampeg cab.

      these strings are the epitomy of how an excellent bass string should be: excellent feel and tonal qualities with a nice bite.

      Comments about Rotosound RS665LD Roundwound 5-String Bass Strings:

      I've been playing Rotosound strings for 35 years and won't use any other. I bought a 5-string Bass for a back up and couldn't get the sound I wanted out of it. I had it professionally set up and strung with Brand x strings. Still no good sound.
      I gave up on the new bass and was considering trading it but I decided to buy the Rotosound strings and try one more time.
      Presto! Big fat sound, clear and strong. Now I love playing the 5-string because of the Rotosounds.

      I've used these strings on my 5 string for about 5 or 6 months now and they still sound amazing and have a great tone!

      Comments about Rotosound RS665LD Roundwound 5-String Bass Strings:

      The only reason I dont give them a 10 is because they are a little expensive and sometimes you get a bad batch. What I mean by bad batch is they dont last as long as they should. Some batches seem to be better than others sometimes.
      As always most Rotosound strings sound fantastic. Hopefully these will last a while and not go dead after a few uses. They are just what the Doctor ordered especially if you play a passive P or Jazz bass.
