        Comments about Rotosound RS77LE Heavy Gauge Jazz Bass Monel Flat Wound Strings:

        These are just what I needed for my "neck-through" custom build. The higher tension stopped the "clacking" I was experiencing with other sets from other manufacturers. One thing to keep in mind...be gentle when stringing...don't bring up to tune quickly...be patient...you'll love'em!

        • Drop Tunings
        • Eliminating Fret Buzz

        Comments about Rotosound RS77LE Heavy Gauge Jazz Bass Monel Flat Wound Strings:

        Strings sound and feel great! Even using them in drop D and half a step down, they're still very high tension, and I had to file out the nut to make them fit (because they're so thick). I may decide to move one gauge lighter, but these definitely accomplished my goals of eliminating fret buzz, feeling much smoother, and reducing high mid / treble output. Definitely worth buying if you want high tension flat wounds for drop tunings.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Rotosound RS77LE Heavy Gauge Jazz Bass Monel Flat Wound Strings:

          I got interested in these English strings after a interview with this Entwistle guy who said, "They sound a bit like a grand piano and a really big kettle drum at the same time. And they sound good soft or loud." 35 years later, I only play these strings. They are used by just about every pro I have known. I don't know why they do, but they do sound BETTER, like a supercharged Bentley.
