Dunlop - Super Bright™ Nickle Bass Strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by chinjazz, Jan 25, 2014.

  1. Hi All,

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

    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.
     
  3. They should at least send you a few new sets for catching that Typo!!!

    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. :(

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

    I'm using Steels.
     
  16. 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!
