    So I have this set of 4 Warwick EMP coated stainless roundwounds in .045 thru .105.

    Are these a fairly bright string overall?

    My few bass playing buddies have never used Warwick strings but say they must be very good quality?

    Not seeing a lot of reviews on these.:rollno:

    I heared, that warwick strings aren't good, but it's best to try them yourself.

    I got two sets with my Custom Shop fretless (one on the bass and one extra). I wouldn't call them a bright string; the coating really muffles the sound. Used the one set on the bass for two months and then put an uncoated set on instead. I might still have the extra set somewhere.

    More of a flatwound tone?

    They sound similar to the Black Label's which are Stainless Steel strings. Its kind of hard to describe the tone and its been a while since I had them, just try them out and tell us how they sound!!
