I've bought several sets of these strings. They are a very flexible, low tension set in the 45-105 gauge. Very bright initially but not obnoxiously so as the brand would suggest. Ive used the Super Brights on my USA Fender 62 Jazz and my USA G&L L2000 with good results for both. I used a set of stainless steel on my USA Peavey Cirrus and liked those as well. Same low tension with a reduction of mids and slight boost in highs.
These strings have a great feel. Quite smooth. But its the mids that get you. They have a very crunchy almost Rotosoundish tone to them?
The only thing I didn't like was how they sounded worn in. This didn't happen any faster than any other roundwound string that I can remember but I just thought they sounded kind of dull after a while. They still felt great and still retained most of the mid crunch but I missed the high end. Still a good purchase for around $14. There's not a lot to complain about, ya know?
