      Comments about Rotosound RS66LC Long Scale Swing Bass Strings:

      Tone of the greats (Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, Billy Sheehan, and more) lies within these strings. I play everything from art-rock (Rush, Yes, ELP) to jazz and fusion (Coltrane, Bruford, Brand X) and classical and these are great for everything.

      They start with a bright overtone quality, great for a punchy, cutting bass (you almost need to compensate for added treble). They then mellow with your playing, but still retain a great roundwound quality.

      Overall very focused, mid-rich, piano-esque tone.

      Best Strings Out There

      By Parker-NYlb3

      from Waterford

      Comments about Rotosound RS66LC Long Scale Swing Bass Strings:

      I bought a set of rotos just about 3 months ago thinking "hey, I haven't tried these yet" and I found out that some of the greatest bassists have used these, so I went and bought a set within a week. Before I bought these I was using D'Adarrio EXL 170's because they had a great sound, but they didn't last more than 2 weeks for me. The greatest thing I like about these strings is the fact that they have the same tone as the EXL's but they also last 5x longer. And yes, they may be steel wound, but they are by far the softest steel strings that I have ever played. These things were made by the best to suit anyone and everyone. Buy these, you'll never use anything else!

      great strings

      By leni-coloursound

      from new york city

      Comments about Rotosound RS66LC Long Scale Swing Bass Strings:

      I play a Rickenbacker 4003 through a dual ampeg setup. as many know, it is tough to get clean lows on the ric ...i also has some neck problems that needed to be dealt with. well, short end of the story: these strings are clear across the entire register, and very easy on the neck due to a lighter gauge. if you like low tension strings (i.e. great 'spongy' feel), these are for you. i liken them to roundwound thomastiks. so clear that even my guitarist noticed the difference ...

      These strings really do sound and feel great. I have used them for 4 years.They wil get sounds out of your bass that others won't. If you want a crisp sound and feel, play rotosound!
