    "Impulse Buy"
    Pros - These strings are surprisingly punchy and fat
    Cons - A little more than I'm use to paying for regular bass strings, but it was an impulse buy.
    I was in Guitar Center looking to purchase a wind screen but they didn't have the size I needed. After checking out basses I browsed the string rack and impulsively bought these Super Slinky Flatwounds for my Jazz bass. I'm pleasantly surprised by the tone. They are both fat and punchy, with great clarity. The strings are very smooth, very playable. I've had flats that took some getting used to initially because they had a tacky feel, but these feel great right out the pack. Exactly what I was looking for. Keep in mind that this is a first impression after 2 days, but I am happy with my purchase. P02814.

    I have fretless fender JB japan 2006 with handmade mics by J.Salo, overwounds, I use this strings last christmas to july, almost everyday playing, these bass came alive with these strings they lasted half year very good, good sound, little bit metallic but suits very well fretless. I don't want to put roundwounds, so these make the sound closer but also flat feeling. Not very bad price

    It's been 3 months and I'm still happy with these strings. No plans to change them. They're still thumping and bright
