I Just barely bought this set new, put it on my bass two days ago, and they have never been off the bass. My bass is a 7/8 size, and it doesn't quite have the tension I'm used to. They sound awesome though, both pizz and arco. They would most likely work better for a smaller sized bass. I'm looking to trade for a set of dominant regulars, or I would sell these for $150. Pm me if interested.
