Best String I Have Played

By sal4bass

from MidWest

Comments about Thomastik JR344 Scale Roundwound 4-String Jazz Bass Strings:

The TI Jazz Rounds are a very unique string. They are my favorite string after 30+ years of playing. They are extra light gauge (.089 E string) with very low tension. Some have described them as "floppy" but I disagree with that assessment. I use them on a Fender Active Jazz Deluxe, '62RI Jazz, G&L L-2000, and Peavey Sarzo. They break-in quickly and last forever (over 2 years on my main bass). They have a warm, "woody" tone ideal for finger-style. This is achieved by a thin insulation around the string core which can give a very convincing acoustic tone on a Fender Jazz neck pickup. They are not a bright sounding string, yet have more definition than flats. Windings are very tight and feel silky smooth. Due to lack of bright highs, I wouldn't recommend them if slapping is your thing, though they can be slapped with adequate results. Think the exact opposite of DR Highbeams for comparison. Though rolled off in the highs, they still retain a rich full tone. This coupled with low tension makes them a joy to play and harmonic nuances can easily be coached from them. The only reason I did not score them perfect is because they lack brightness slappers prefer and they are expensive. Yet when one considers how long they last, they are a terrific value - highly recommended!

    Comments about Thomastik JR344 Scale Roundwound 4-String Jazz Bass Strings:

    I love T-I flats but wanted to try their rounds. I was hesitant to try this lite .089 guage, but my pre-Gibson Tobias never felt or sounded how I wanted it w/dr hi-beams or lo-riders or dm blue steel ss rounds or roto flats(too-high tension). I prefer 15" speakers & my bass always had incredible tone ability w/its 3 band equalizer & big bartolini. Shockingly, these .089's have lots of low bass & naturally have more cut-thru-the-mix ability than the T-I flats used on my fretted thumb or fretless corvette warwicks. this is now my favorite bass. similar to T-I flats w/a double bass distinctive sound as opposed to the more guitar like sound of other brands. an upright bass sound voiced for rock, pop & soul.

    Comments about Thomastik JR344 Scale Roundwound 4-String Jazz Bass Strings:

    As a bassist who has played the electric bass for over 50 years these strings are a revelation. They sound great, although they do require a careful EQ to get the most from them sonically. They need a light touch since they are low tension strings and, while they are not strings that work especially well for slapping or to use a pick to do your best John Entwistle impression, they are versatile and can get a variety of sounds...not a one trick pony string. They are absolutely the most musical and sensitive strings I have ever played and worth the expensive price.
