I like to experiment with cheaper brands to find bargains ans I discovered these. Supposiedly from "Italy", The packaging was nice with each string getting its own bag. However the engrish on the front was a shadow of what was to come!
I put them on. So far so good but strangely they already felt cheap. Though my previous strings, "Foehn ebbs-440" were the same gauge I had some intonation and action issues. Not unexpected, so so far so good.
However. I used them with amplification and things went south. Typically I dislike brand new strings because of the zingyness but these were DEAD. There was hardly any volume, I though I had knocked the volume knob by mistake but nope. I couldn't get a good tone either. I even messed with my eq settings, something I never need to do typically for practice.
Nothing gave me a decent sound. It was so bad, I though something was wrong with my bass so I threw my previous set on and......
It sounded fine again. These strings suck, even for five bucks.....Stay away!
