SIT Silencers

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by deadhead, Oct 17, 2009.

  1. So, I just ordered a pair of these online and should be getting them in a few days. I've played on halfwound D'Addario's for the past year or so and although I really like the sound behind a halfwould, they were really sticky to slide on and didn't last long. Has anyone had any experience with these Silencer's?? I would like to know what to expect. (or even from SIT strings in general)?

    I mostly play jazz now but I play quite a bit of blues and rock too, just for the context that the strings will be preforming in.

    I've got a set on a 34" bass and another set that I cut to go on a 30" bass. I like them. They're somewhere in between flats and rounds for feel - not sticky at all - and sound more roundwound to me.
  3. do they sound more or less exactly like roundwounds or do they have more of a bottom end like the flats?

    They're brighter than flats. They do have a nice growl to them.

    I use SIT silencers on occasion. They are very smooth to the touch and they are not as bright sounding as rounds but they are a little more livelier sounding than flats. And depending on your body chemistry they do last a while.

    I'm an SIT strings endorser.
