    I just got a few pairs of strings but I look forward to experimenting with more in the future!

    To me they sound fuller overall..brighter and deeper. Definitely not as smooth feeling, but not rough either. Maybe a hair smoother than HiBeams. They are round core, so low tension. Very nice.

    Love the K3 coating... I've been using dragon skins and neons for about a year now.

    I agree btw - Jason and BSO for president!

    The more I play these Dragon Skins, the more I am REALLY liking them. I don't think I will be switching back to Black Beauties........

    Five string set adds $8 to the price which is still higher than the price when registered as a VIP.

    The $59 price is clearly for their 4 string set.

    The BSO VIP price is less than $59.98 including shipping for the 4 string set.

    The BSO VIP price is less than $67.98 including shipping when figuring in the reward points.

    I have adjusted the VIP price for the 5 string set so it matches the link to the site above.

    The price difference was $1.57 higher than the link above, but users who purchased from Bass Strings Online get 5% back in reward points which is about $3 on the 5 string set making it $1.43 Cheaper than the site above.

    However those who have purchased the 5 string set as VIP's I will go ahead an credit $1.57 worth of reward points to your account automatically. (32 Points)

    So now that we have adjusted the VIP price on the 5 string set, we are 5% lower than the site above when figuring in points.

    Thank you for pointing this out as we can not keep track of every site on the internet. We gladly match and beat prices every day!

    Thank you for catching that the price at Strings and Beyond is $67.98 with free shipping.

    Two questions: What does it take to be a VIP at BSO and do they charge for shipping?

    Shipping on the 3 pack is $3.74 for VIP's and it gets shipped via PRIORITY MAIL at that rate due to the weight of the package.

    To become a VIP simply register on the site on the My-Account page and put in the comments you are from Talk Bass. Then you will get extra discounts automatically site wide!

    You can create an account on this page:

    http://www.bassstringsonline.com/register.asp?cg=0

    So after shipping and the reward points are issued the BSO price wins by about $3, plus you get the world renowned BassStringsOnline.com Sticker!

    For those who have purchased the 5 string set as a VIP I have credited your reward points account with the 34 points rather than 32 so you have an evey 100 points to redeem (100 points is good to redeem for $5 off your next purchase!)

    Thank you for everyone who has purchased and a thank you in advance for those who are going to be purchasing in the near future!

    Now that's what I call service! Good luck getting that level of service from any other string seller.
