    Hi All,

    I just received an email from Dunlop about new 2014 products, and it lead me to this page:

    http://www.jimdunlop.com/product/super-bright-nickle

    Super Bright™ Nickle Bass Strings

    Any NAMM goers have a chance to check them out?

    Exciting times for bass players wishing to check out new strings, I must say!

    Cheers!

    They could at least spell 'nickel' right...

    I wish I could afford to try all the new strings this year and I am glad to see the Dunlop offerings grow.

    At least it's spelled correctly on the package.

    I've had a chance to try the Super Brights and I love them. It's the first string I've tried that made me want to switch from the DRs I've been using for years. The only thing that bums me out is I don't believe they're making a 50-110 set for my D tuned bass. :(

    I hope these are super bright as advertised. My experience with Dunlop strings has been less than stellar. Me and my son bought a bunch of the nickelplated ones when they BOGO and they were some of the dullest sounding rounds out of the pack that I have ever tried. Maybe that's the broken in sound that they advertise them to be but way too dull for us. We ended up giving most of them away.

    They actually feel and sound very similar to the DRs that I've been using for years (Hi-Beams).

    I'm feeling kind of Deja vou with this.
    I just did this exercise with FlexSteels.

    Of course I'm interested in knowing how they differ.

    Happy Friday Folks!
