    Hi there,

    I am getting a Vigier passion III tomorrow and wondered if the bass would be ok strung with roundwound strings due to the exceptionally hard delta metal playing surface? does anybody have experience of them?

    Cheers in advance,

    Welcome to the Vigier club!! Tell me more about your new
    bass! You buying new or used? The Passion fretless comes strung from the factory with Vigier stainless roundwounds
    45-100. They're made by D'Addario. I've got 2 Vigiers; an
    Excess 1 and an Excess 2. They're superb instruments.

    Hi mate, Thanks for the info. So roundwounds sound like they are going to be ok for it then?

    I am buying second hand here in the UK and it should be arriving any min!!! cant wait. Its my 8th bass but my first fretless. They really are beautiful! it is gloss black all over. I will attach pics if I can.

    Cheers mate
