OK, yes, I'm sponsored by them, but I have to say that I really like these strings A LOT. American made (San Jose, CA) with a proprietary technology that really extends the life of the strings. Plus, they come in a cool tin. The owner, Michael is a really good guy too. http://www.mjcironworks.com/ I play the MEDIUM LIGHT on all of my basses. I just prefer the sound and it highlights my playing style the best.
