Circle K strings went live...
I can't wait to try out a set!
Me too! Once I find out if I'm getting this G&L or not, I'm going to be buying a set for 5er (G&L) and 6er (Spector). If I don't get the G&L, I'm getting the 6er set anyway .
here is some more info... http://acapella.harmony-central.com/showthread.php?t=2338278
Damn! They have some really thick gauges!
The brains behind it is also the brains behind the 39.5" scale "Quake" bass
Pretty sweet. Can't justify the price yet though.
As he grows and offers more string gauges (.145 B, for instance), I'll have to check them out.
For now, my Fodera strings will get me by.
I used both Fodera SS and nickel-plated sets for a long time. I like the Circle K better. I haven't checked recent Fodera string pricing, but as I recall they are not cheaper than these.
Have any of you tried the 5-string sets with low B? I am trying to find the Holy Grail of strings...I was almost there with TI-super alloys...the low B was lacking though. Thinking in terms of .135 or .125 gauge.
I did not know convenience stores sold bass strings
Just dropped a 4 string set on my G&L L2000. Loving 'em so far!
lol My initial thoughts exactly
Please elaborate. I JUST scored an L-2500 on eBay, and will need some strings for it once it gets here.
I've had mine on (prototypes) two or three months. If anything, I like them even better now. Maybe that's because I haven't had F#0 and B strings that didn't start sounding a bit duller and feeling a bit less responsive than the rest of the set after a couple weeks.
Roundwound hex core nickel/steel hybrid strings sounds great - I'd give them a try try, but I don't see any standard gauge 5er sets [45/65/85/105/130] or taperwounds.
Maybe they will down the road.
You won't find a .130 likely ever, but they're all taper wound.
There is the 5 String Traditional Standard - .135 .105 .080 .065 .045
I'd love to see some thicker gauged flats!
Me too - baby steps.
Haven't played them enough for a full eval, but so far they have great bottom and are well balanced across the spectrum. I have the 100 set and tension is perfect across the board for me. Of course, that is gonna be somewhat subjective.
16 different gauge choices in 4 string sets, but no 45-100? Seems odd.
