Ask me a question

Pros

  • Consistent
  • Drop Tunings
  • Good Tone
  • Smooth Feel
  • Strong

Cons

  • Need To File Nut To Use

Best Uses

  • 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.

Why Are These So Good!!!

By Go Go Van Go

Pros

  • Good Tone

Cons

  • Makes Groupies Love You

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.
