      Comments about Rotosound RS77M Jazz Bass Monel Flat Wound Strings:

      These strings WILL change the tone of your guitar. I but them on my Ibanez Acoustic Bass and immediately there wasn't as much volume and the tone became more like a "stand up" bass.
      But... that's what I was looking for. Add in the smooth easy playability of these strings, and it's a win-win! Are they for "everybody"... nope...
      But they're for me!

      Comments about Rotosound RS77M Jazz Bass Monel Flat Wound Strings:

      i bought a fender jaguar bass and was told it was a short scale. after trying short scale strings i bought from a local music store that were too shot. i ordered these from m.f. thinking it must be a medium scale. wrong. turns out it's a standard scale bass. unfortunately i could not return them because i had put one on the guitar. but m.f. refunded my money and sent me a set of ernie ball flat wound free. even though it was my mistake. can't beat that with a stick. i have used roto sound before and loved them. turns out ernie ball is just as good and cost less.

        Comments about Rotosound RS77M Jazz Bass Monel Flat Wound Strings:

        I bought short scale LaBellas first, but they don't fit on my Japanese hollowbody bass because of the trapeze tailpiece. So I need medium scale strings. I don't like these as much as LaBellas, not as smooth or mellow. They are actually just a little bright for my taste, and you can feel the windings under your fingers after two weeks of heavy break-in and stretching. I'm hoping they will continue to mellow out over time.

        Top Quality From a Top Name!

        By mgblake

        from Unionville, NY

        Comments about Rotosound RS77M Jazz Bass Monel Flat Wound Strings:

        I recently got a Rogue Violin Bass from my wife for Christmas. I've always used flatwounds, and decided on these strings based solely on reputation. All of the greats have used these strings... including Roger Waters! The first thing I noticed about these strings was the quality craftsmanship! The windings were tight and clean! I found them to be smoother that the Fender flatwounds I've been using. When I got them on my bass the sound was amazing! These are the brightest sounding flatwounds I've ever used, yet the sound is still very warm! I recommend these to anyone looking for quality flatwounds at a resonable price.
