Had my first order from Bassstringsonline.com recently and thought I'd post about it. I had decided to get a bit adventurous. My experience with bass strings is really pretty light. Mostly I just buy basic steel roundwounds and am done with it, but I thought I'd try something new with this order. Bought the yellow ones to liven up my otherwise black Ibanez sb900le. Again, I've like 0% experience with anything but stainless roundwounds. The idea was mostly just to liven up my stage presence a bit, since I don't exactly leap about the stage. But I'm very happy with them I must say. They do sound a LITTLE less piano-like than I'm used to, but they sure look nice on an all-black bass I can tell you, and I think I have more versatility with that (very!) slightly less metallic sound. As for the Fender nickel plated strings, I may just have a tin ear. Figured to stick with Fender for my Precision. They sound and play just fine, but I honestly can't tell much difference with what I had before except that they're newer and thus a bit brighter. As for bassstringsonline.com - what can I say? Got what I expected when I expected at a price that was pleasantly unexpected. Very happy of course! First order in what is likely to be a long relationship I predict.
