Bought a set of these and when I installed them the brass end on the E string snapped off while tuning up to pitch. By this time it was months after I bought them and I couldn't find the receipt so $60 wasted, not a note played with these strings. Brutally disappointing.
Will never buy another TI product. This is the only time ever that I snapped a bass string.

- + Everything
- - They are pricey
I've been using TI strings for many years and have never been disappointed with the feel and sound. I bought several sets about six years ago and was surprised to see the current price but these are very good strings. I would highly recommend these or other TI strings to anyone who can live with the price.

- + Best sounding, best feel of any strings I ever purchased.
- - No cons.
I was a rotosound string user for a long time. Played Fender flats, Chromes and tried at least 10 other brands at different points in time. I recently tried the thomastik infelds JF344'S and I was impressed immediately. I don't think I will be trying any new strings for a while, these strings meet my needs in all departments of tone and feel. After two weeks and at least 30 hours of playing, they are still smooth and crisp sounding like the day I put them on.
