Cons - Set not quite balanced but it seems intentional. G string almost seems like a round while the rest are flats, its the only string that sounds good slapping.
I really enjoy these strings. I'm using them on a Peavey frankenbass for Gigs that require a more mellow tone. I like that they aren't a "one trick pony", I was able to get good thump out of them and opening up the tone showed a lot more bite than I expected from tapes. All in all very pleased.
never tried tapewounds before these ... interesting feel/sound . I was looking for something rather mellow and different than your normal flats. ( Ti ) these are wrapped around the GHS ground/half wounds .. they have their reasons at their site , which made sense . My other basses have GHS Pessurewounds and i wanted something different . They work fine for that .!
I used these on an Epiphone El Capitan 5 fretless, which turned out to be a match made in Heaven. Very smooth, with a truly deep richness. Worked great running direct in acoustic band settings. Note were clear and distinct, even in the low first position. the money tone was around the ninth to 12th feet area. These are probably the best sounding strings I have ever tried on a ABG.
The only issue I had was installing the "B" string, which unraveled during installation. GHS quickly replaced it for me, but use caution when installing these strings.
A side note, the Customer Service Agent at GHS who helped me informed me that these strings (black nylon tapes) are there only GHS labeled string that are not manufactured by GHS.
