I was lurking in a local music store Mom and Pop owned and came across some strings I have been looking for,I saw them on-line but never in person,I bought me a set and they are freakin awesome! I sometimes use the usual nylon coated but they are sometimes to rubbery unless used in a string through bridge but I'm not into them on my new p-bass(only bass I own w/string through) but these go great on my Japanese Squier/Memphis hybred P-Bass(say it 3 times fast!),real smooth and silky but with a bit more bite than a regular coated nylon,kinda like the middle ground that a compression wound reaches between a round and a flatwound,not totally a flat but not like a roundwound, JUST'A RIGHT !! GIVE'EM A SHOT!
