    Comments about Warwick M5B EMP COATED 5-String Bass Strings Medium:

    All the new Custom Shop models from Germany come with these strings. If you play an older Warwick, as I do, then this is the closest to the strings that came with it when it was new. All Warwicks are the same neck length so one will fit all. These rock my boat. They make my old model sound like the new $6K models. Same electronics (MEC) and now the same strings. Best price is right here - they are double this price from Warwick. These are NOT tapered so some older bridges will not take them. Check first to see if you can use a normal B and E without any taper. If not, these are not for you.

      Comments about Warwick M5B EMP COATED 5-String Bass Strings Medium:

      I have a Warwick bass and Love the sound. I picked up a job with a local band and we were getting ready to head into the studio to record our demo so I wanted to get some strings that would keep my classic Warwick sound. These are the top of the line strings by Warwick and they sound like it! Most Warwick basses ship with Black level strings which are great, but I was surprised by how much better the EMPs were. The lows rumble, the mids sound funky, and the highs pop out. Great balance with harmonics and the strings are easy to play in standard or droppped tuning.

      Comments about Warwick M5B EMP COATED 5-String Bass Strings Medium:

      Very consistent. GREAT tone. Nice feel. Purchased Warwick Black and EMP's simultaneously in error. Played Blacks first for a week. Then the EMP's. Didn't expect any difference (thought it only impacted longevity). Feel and tone is significantly better. Not sure why so significant (maybe bad batch of Blacks?) but it is what it is.
