    I did a search and found nothing. Has anyone used these strings? Opinions?

    They are acoustic bass strings just to let you know. Sorry if you already know that. Just tryin to help. Oh, I got this from Music123.com:

    "Gauges 45-55-80-95. Wound with an alloy of 92% copper, 7.7% tin, and 0.3 % phosphorus. They have a light orange-gold color and provide a mellow, ringing sound with excellent clarity. All Ernie Ball strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and most exacting specs to assure consistency, optimum performance, and long life."

    I didn't know that, but I assumed it. Ernie Ball had the Earthwood bass, which was a bigarse acoustic bass.

    I use Earthwoods on my Tacoma and love them. At least, they are better than D'Adarrios and Elixers that I have tried. It's kind of hard to find ABG strings around here. I actually ordered the Earthwoods online. They have a great acoustic sound although a bit bright. I would definately recommend anyone with an ABG give them a try.
