Signature strings? What do you think? The windings start after the bridge and lets you bend the strings(easily) if your into that. I found it gave a nice tone and the b string sounded very nice. They are expensive but cool I thought. Bad part is the strings would break in about 6-8 months of playing at the bridge cause its thin in that area and then bridge would cut them. Most other strings I have never break and last years. i have had only two a strings snap on me in 17 years of playing. Both were on a passive bass and I play without a pick so I was wanking on it. With 18volt actives I barely touch them and the sund is screaming and the compressor is working to keep it in line. But anyways thats five other topics in itself.
