So, I was browsing my local music-shop and came across these strings. They were sent with an order by mistake and had no home. I just couldn't leave them all orphaned and destined for the postal service again so I purchased them. I strung up my fretless and figured I'd offer a review here since there isn't much going around about them: Fit and finish: First impression was good. Standard packaging and such, but the silk winding is high quality, and gold, which to my eye gave the strings a nice "vintage" vibe. The polishing makes them as smooth as glass and you can barely make out the winding at all. From a short distance they look like solid metal wire. First impressions/tension: Upon tuning them up for the first time I immediately noticed that they didn't have the normal "fresh string sound." Before plugging in I played a few notes and they sounded warm and generous in the low mids. The highs were noticeably lacking. Once amplified the low end definitely comes out, but (as was stated in the one review I found) has a pretty quick decay. The low mids are quite prevalent, but not overpowering. The highs are pretty clanky with just a little bit of glass on top. The tension is pretty middle of the road. Not as high as Rotosound 77s, but higher than Fender flats. The feel was incredibly smooth (no surprise). They were even tonally and in regard to volume. I practiced with them for a couple hours, but couldn't quite decide if I really liked them, which is pretty normal for me when I try out new strings. I decided to leave them on for the next couple gigs to see how they sounded in the mix with the full band (country-rock, classic-country, and some random rock tunes (Prince, Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, etc...). The low mids again reigned supreme and sat pretty well, but the quick decay of the lows and lack of sparkle on top were pretty out of the ordinary for me. I still couldn't make up my mind, but I definitely didn't dislike them at this point. I then set up for practice at home (they had roughly nine hours of play-time at this point) and couldn't get a tone I really liked. After this amount of breaking in they really dulled out. The highs were nothing but clank, and the lows were thuddy. If I were playing Motown and going for a Jamerson vibe they'd be great, but that just isn't the tone I'm aiming for. To sum it up: For those of you who like medium tension, super smooth feel, a vintage look, and smooth, Motown like sound, these are great. I can't come up with a genre that could use the clanky highs, but I'm sure there's someone out there who loves that sound. In the end I've gone back to the Rotosound 77's for now. The DR Legends will just have to sit around until I land a Soul-Band/Motown type gig, or until I sell them. I paid $35.00 for the pack. Hope this is helpful to someone who might be considering these strings. Thanks for reading!
