    I like their stainless taperwound 6 string sets, good value for the money.

    I love Ken Smith Stainless Rockmasters. I've never got a bad string yet and the best part is Smith's prices are really good!

    I only use Ken Smith Burners NPS on my Zon fretless. Perfect combination.

  6. love em, nice tone and it seems to last
     
  7. Very good quality for the Stainless Rockmasters.
    Very long useful life.
    Not so good sounding the nickel type for my taste.

    I use Ken Smith rockmasters exclusivly, even on my cheap
    Series 10 P-J they sound great, and it was the easiest, and cheapest way to get that "piano" tone out of my rig.
    I've tried a lot of other strings including Fender, and Rotosound, and I'm sold on the Ken Smiths.
     
  9. broke a D'Dario Xl this week end and replaced them with a set of rock masters i had around and i was blow away, i forgot how nice they sound. is it just me or do these things feel a little smoother than other strings?
    has anyone tried the bass burner series?
     
  10. I tried Bass Burners, if you like nickel strings go with it.

    Nice the blue silk at one side and orange at the other one ... ;)
     
  11. I've got a set of Slickrounds on an AmDlx P. I like them. They're balanced and have a nice solid bottom. Haven't tried any of the other types nor have I put them on any of my other basses.
