    First off, I want to say that I am a finger player, I play in tunings from E standard to B standard but D standard mostly. I do not use a pick (may matter to the pick players considering these strings) and I have been playing bass for about 8 or 9 years and have tried a great variety of strings out there. D’addarios, GHS, DR, Rotosound, Dean Markley, so on and so forth. When I first started playing bass I wanted to try out a lot of strings just to find the perfect sound for me. I am a metal bass player mainly. I also play classic rock, blues, whatever. ANYWAYS, I recently bought a Schecter Stilleto Studio 5 bass. It came loaded with regular slinkys and I was super impressed. Before then I was a DR guy. They had awesome tone but didn’t last as long as I needed. So I bought another pair of regular slinkys. Then I was starting to realize I wasn’t getting a punchy high end on the regs. Also the “E” string was just a tad too.. I guess loose would be the word. You would think that the regulars would have a 105 on the “E” string but they have a 100.. weird. So I upped to these strings and wow did it make a huge bit of difference. Nice punch through crisp high strings and a nice fat warm crisp on the low. Not too bright, not too dull. They are incredibly cheap and they last a long time. I don’t need to pop them in and out every month or 2. They sound good to me with any type of music. Hope this helps. Thanks for reading.

    As i titled my review, this string set is as good as the expensive ones, plus it has that particular punchy, fat, clear sound that everyone loves. I am not only a bass player but also a string dealer. Because of this I had the opportunity to test a wide range of brands, materials, gauges, etc. Ernie ball have something that the other ones don’t. Give you the opportunity to check it!
