    I've been thinking of trying out a new brand of strings, and recently one of my favourite bands guitarists was endorsed by Optima. I'd never heard of them before, and so when I saw they were made of gold, i had to go give them a look, and discovered they also made a pretty decent selection of bass strings! I'd definitely like to give em try, but they're a fair bit more expensive than the Daddarios I normally buy, so I'd like to get the opinions and experiences of any TB'ers who've come into contact with Optima strings.

    Canada, eh!
    Optima make very high quality strings. They're quite rare in North America however. I have played their flatwound bass strings, the "Chrome" set and they're great. I have also played pure nickel "Jazz" guitar rounds. I have never tried their famous 24K gold strings.
