    I've tried them. They are very low tension strings. For bluegrass and slap they work well. I had them on a '42 Kay and the combination really produced a ton of volume. They have a real solid fundamental with a quick decay and very little overtone series.

    Many folks over at Rockabillybass.com have favorable things to say about them.

    It took me a couple tries to get a good set from Rotosound however. There were some winding problems on the E string. At one point along the string there was a noticable bump.

    $55 sounds like quite a deal..... IF there are no winding problems. You might ask the vendor about this.

  2. Thank you for your input.
    OK, I will ask the vendor when I decide to try them.

    However, I wonder that these strings set can play pizz nicely?
    I play mostly jazz pizzicato.

    Thank you
  3. They would be good for a nice bassy , thumpy jazz sound.'lil bit of fingerboard buzz...but , would sound good....forget them and get a set of pirastro pizzacatos...or jazzers
