Hey all...I wanted to know if anyone had any experience with the Pirastro Chrome-steels. I did a search and really did not turn up anything. A friend of mine put them on his bass, and they sounded great. The strings felt like they had fairly low tension, but it might be hard for me to tell because his string length is a lot shorter than mine. I did not care for the E string though, it did not speak with as much authority as the other strings did. The strings seemed to have a good growl on top, while still retaining a nice bottom. These strings were only less than a week old, though. How hard and quick do these strings die. I did not get a chance to put a bow to them, but I can imagine they are pretty scratchy this new. Let me know what you guys think.
