Sadowsky strings....killer in so many ways

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by JimS, Jun 8, 2007.


  1. You guys know I love Sadowsky guitars and basses. Heck, I have 5 with 2 more on the way. But I purchased some of his guitar and bass strings and they are indeed verrrrry nice. But now he's having a killer sale on them. I'm definitely ordering and thought I'd pass the info on.

    http://www.sadowsky.com/

    BTW, I'm not affiliated with Sadowsky and I pay for all my stuff. This isn't spam. It's passing information on what I think is a good deal. If I saw a sale on Aguilar heads for $400 or Metro's for $1200 I'd pass that along too.

    I'd like to try the Sadowsky flats. These sale prices don't look like much of a deal, though. A seller on Ebay has them for about $40 shipped, while they're priced at $42 before shipping on the website.

    I don't believe the flats are on sale. On their string page, is has to say "ON SALE" next to it.


    I got 5 sets of light guage 4 string Nickels for $70 shipped.

    That's, including shipping, only $14 a set.

    My other string of choice is DR. light gauge 4 string Sunbeams would cost me $23.93 + shipping at Juststrings.com

    I feel I made out like a bandit - won't have to buy strings for about a year now.

    Someone said even though it said out of stock, you could still buy some of them.

    Check it out

    I know the makers of LaBella strings make their flats, don't know about the rounds.

    Sadowsky flats are incredibly good sounding strings: I describe them as LaBella 760FLs with attitude i.e. more aggressive and growly, and less thumpy but with a very similar tonal balance and midrange voicing.

    I love them on my Jazz because they are so versatile; you can tame them easily for a classic thumpy flat tone, or get them to cut and grind without overdrive in a busy mix where a traditional flat might be a little too tame.

    I think that LaBellas or Sadowskys will go on my P-Bass next. I currently have some TI's on there, and I like them, but I also always like trying new things!

    I play it all. Whatever works for the gig. Q+
    I LOVE the Sadowsky flats... I have them on my NYC PJ5.. They are the smoothest feeling flats that i have tried.. Darker sounding than Daddario Chromes, but the sadowskys have nice tension and they are polished mirror shinny.. I think they are expensive but the feel great!

    Unlike Chromes I find they sound good on all kinds of basses- I've had basses where the Chromes were perfect and others where the pronounced high mids just became grating and unmusical. The Sadowskys are very present without being particularly bright.
