Well...no one uses them?
I used to use them all the time, got mine from Subway Guitars in the bay area. I lived in Laguna Beach at the time, but my gf was up in Berzerkley. I bought them in bulk, and boy, were they cheap! I think back then (late 80s, early 90s) they were about $6 a set in bulk (10 or 20 sets, IIRC). I was a tone Nazi at the time, as soon as the strings would start to lose their sparkle, I'd change them. As often as two sets a weekend, if I was playing a lot (which I was). I only got two bad strings out of over a hundred sets. One was an E that broke just above the Bb, 6th fret (WOW, was THAT ever a weird feeling!) the other was a G that broke at the bridge. I found that they were quite good, and after doing some digging around, I found that Vinci was one of only a handful of actual manufacturers of bass strings in the US, and sold to many "name brand" labels. Good enough for them, good enough for me!
Worst strings I have ever played. Really trebley, and they went dead very quickly (2-3 days). I like my strings kind of dead, but these went from zing to lifelessness in that time.
I just put a set of nickel rounds on my Fender/Squier Jazz and I really like them.
