  2. Good deal bro.

    I've used them before, they are a pleasure to play.
     
  3. I`ve always wondered about the nylon covered bass strings.What kind of sound do they give off?
    How would you compare them to standard nickel or stainless rounds?
     
  4. I think they would compare best to flats, but I havent tried them, so I wouldnt know:p

    Hey, I got two sets of Thomastik Jazz flats for Christmas. I really like them!
    Let us know how those strings turn out for you.

  7. the fender nylons - the sound is pretty close to flats, as is the feel.

    they play well, and the tension on my .110 feels less than a .100 stainless steel flatwound.

    i just don't think they drop-D very well.
     
  8. Yay! I got those for christmas last year, for my fretless. This year I got EB Slinkys for my 5 string fretted. I like them.
