    They sure are cheap.

    How would you compare them to other nickels?

    I know that my Guitar Center stopped selling them, but I don't know why. I bought all that they had left. I get great tone from them and they have lasted a long time on a bass I play every so often (too many to play). They are on my recording bass and I wish I could still buy them. A buddy in college first gave me a set. He got them for free from the family who made them. Ever since, I used them whenever I could. As for the low price, I just took it as icing on the cake.

    I've seen them at Tower Records not too long ago. So. You might still be able to get them.

    I've never noticed bass strings at Tower Records. I'll have to ask. Thanks!

    I've used them, a long time ago though. I've switched to Rotosounds. But I remember Vinci being very good sounding strings, no doubt. Nice and warm. I definately prefer them over any GHS or DR rounds.

    I used them for a while until the local shop stopped carrying them. I always thought they were good sounding - regardless of the great price (which was a bonus).
