Like many people, I read up on these strings for quite some time before purchasing a set. There's an awful lot of hype on them, but it would seem as though the hype is not completely unwarranted. I tried them out at band practice last night and i'm hooked. I put them on my Fender american jazz bass and i've never been more happier w/ my bass tone than I am now. These strings literally sing and make their presence known. They sit with the mix soooooooo well, I thought I was unplugged and playing along to a recording of a studio manicured bass recording. I can see them suiting any style of music, I tend to play a more progressive style with an acoustic group as well as an electric one. These strings suit both styles perfectly. Believe the hype, these strings are spun from the pubic hair of Zeus himself!!!
