    what could i expect with superalloys in terms
    of roundwound feel 4 string set;

    tension
    fretware
    feel on fingers
    long lasting
    gauges

    I should be getting one set (5 string extra long) to try out during October. Going through yet another of my "trying out strings" phases (they're expensive :atoz:).

    I would really appreciate comments and experiences as well.

    I've used TI Superalloys on my 55-01. One note, the extra long B string was too long, strung through the body I still have the full diameter winding on the tuner. Scary, but no problem, did not crack or anything.
    Nice strings, medium tension, nice feel. They mellow quickly with a nice "creamy" high end, then stay that way for a long time.

    My sound clips in this thread are TI Superalloys

    On my Alder / Rosewood Sadowsky they had a great low mid punch but kinda lacked a little on the high end. The bass sounded mean though. I put them on a ash / maple L-2000 that was kinda thin sound and they did the trick. And the high end on this bass were very balanced.

    I think they are great for a bass that needs some thickness down low. But if the bass is inherently dark, they may not be the best depending on what you are going for.

    I usually prefer to "tame" the top end of my L-2500 and like a good ol' bump at 500-750 Hz, so these may be just the ticket. :hyper:

    Hmm... Was that the 40-120 set that fits up to 36" scale? I was planning on getting this in order to go through the body on my 34" G&L. But if the B string was too long through the body for the 35" Lakland, I may have to stick to the standard long scale set. :meh:

    Thanks guys!

    They're mellow and fat sounding rounds with a smooth feel and medium/low tension. The long scale and extra long scale sets are different gauges, meant to maintain the feel I think. Tension/stiffness is about the same as hi beams 45-105, or slightly lower.
