    Pros - Affordable set, sound is good.
    Cons - To much finger noise compared to Nickel, but if you crank it up they still have a good tone.
    A good affordable string, Rotosound do make good strings but I just prefer Nickel, thought I'd try the steel, but they are very touchy I thought, alot of finger noise comes through. Will return to Nickel but that's just me.
    Price Paid:
    $45 New Zealand dollars new from Local shop.

    I do a Rush tribute so that aggressive growl is a necessity. These strings deliver and they are all I use!

    Pros - - You want that Geddy or Entwistle growl? These strings will help you!
    - On any bass, it'll boost up the highs quite a bit naturally.
    Cons - - Feels rather rough and somewhat "sticky" (guess stainless steel doesn't have the nice feel as nickel)
    - Doesn't last a long time.
    I really like these strings; they're my go-to strings on my Geddy Lee Jazz Bass. However, I had to buy at least four sets because they die rather quickly. I try to keep them on for at least 4-5 months before I change them out.

    They're also great on my Precision Bass; with the split-coil pickup, it really adds to the Precision Bass tone!

    Price kind of sucks for how short they last, but man, are they worth it!!!!!!!
