I was a new Double Bass player, and the tone and feel I was getting from my (admittedly) budget DB with steel strings was questionable at best. After some research and discussion with the TalkBass RB Forum folks, I purchased these strings. Fitting them can be a bit of a pain, but not more than the average Joe/Joan can handle. Once I got them on--wow what a difference in tone. Very close to what I consider to be a traditional sound. Decent acoustic--even better amplified. Very playable as well. I was able to lower my string heights and get some better slap/snap action. Plays better in all aspects than what I had before. Suits all my tonal requirements without the need to spend more on guts. Great product!
