    Are they any good? They opened a GC in Madison and had an opening night offer of buy 1 set, get 5 free! I didn't know if it was a deal, or if I'd end up w/ 6 sets of mediocre string!

    Mediocre probably, but still you could have that new string smell for a whole week of daily gigs for cheap. I woulda picked them up just for spares or experimenting with different gauges and stuff.

    Just opened a GC in Pensacola last fall and I fell for the string offer. I don't care for them much. Used a set for a couple of months, but never liked the tone - too bright, almost brittle. Back to DR again. I'll used the rest to put 'new strings' on basses I sell.
