Just in case anybody else was toying with purchasing these strings. My local luthier put these string s on my bass today and they sound fantastic. The generic strings that were on my bass originally sounded very 'tinny' but the Euronsonic light sound 'gut like'. Nice and warm with plent of warm bass esp on the A and D string and the G string. E sounds a little woolly but hopefully after the strings have settled in it will sound like the other 3 strings. I personally like the Eurosonic lights but this is my first bass and first set of strings after having my bass professionally set up.
