    i have been searching through some threads here.

    the opinions on slowounds sound appealing to me, I have never played them.

    I have a 4 string jazz deluxe and prefer to string through body.

    i also have a 5 string warwick streamer standard (1 piece bridge).

    will the slowounds fit on these basses and sound good?

    oh - i also drop to D on my Jazz and tune to adadg on my 5.

    that prolly makes a difference.

    thanks all,
    erik

    Well, strings are highly a subjective matter, but these are popular strings so you'll probably like them. I don't see how they couldn't fit on those basses, as long as the strings are regular long-scale strings.

    yes they will fit, and yes they are the greatest strings ever made

    i use slowound 3000-5 long scale (.45 - .130) on my american deluxe five string jazz and run them through the body... the G string barely makes it on mine because all five tuners are on one side of the headstock, but on a four string or a five with tuners on both sides, they should fit perfectly

    they sound fat and warm with a hint of bite, and they are very comfortable to the touch

    they rock

    Slowounds are great sounding strings. They are a bit more expensive than the XL's, but they are worth it. Depending on the style of music, I will use the XL's if I am slapping more often. They are a bit brighter sounding.
