Pros - Low end
Look really cool
sounds great on reggae and dub songs
Cons - Easily clang
Not for a hard picking style such as metal, unless you want a lot of clang
Really easy on your fingers and dont cause any blistering, also sounds great when fingerpicking close to the neck which is what I use them for.
Problem is becuase they are so thick the E string can really easily clang, espetially when playing near the back pickup.
If you playing a softer style of playing and need something really bassy but dont have a 5 string these are perfect. If you want something with a lot of attack and little clang you should look at something else
Struggled to get a decent sound, gave up on them like another review here, wouldn't try again. You can get a better sound just with Nickels and down toning - I seriously think these are over rated and doubt weather the were used on classics such as 'come together' or anything. Sound very different. (25+exp here).
