    Made by GHS, it's a good string. You can usually
    get them at a good price.

  3. yea....that's what I like about Smith strings, I always find them for really cheap...and you know what it is like when buying sets for 5 strings or more!

    I'm actually wondering what Pollybass pays for a set of strings for his 8 string Conklin....

    I have good luck with Smith strings as well, but I prefer the Custom Tapor Cores over the Nickel Burners any day. The tension on the Burners was a little heavier than the Customs which took some time getting used to. Overall, the Burners are a better string any day over the Markley Nickels.
     
  7. very cool.....I'm thinking of slapping on a set on my ESP bass cuz the Stainless steel didn't complement the sound for me.......and I love the prices I can get them for...you know how it is with 5(or more) string sets....
