...it's true. OK so I am a few years late to the party. I got a set of these a few months ago but had to wait until the right bass came along to put them on. I wanted to put them on a solid P Bass and I just got around to putting them on my 2003 American P Bass. LOVE IT! I am a HUGE LaBella 760FL fan.....now I am not ready to dethrone the 760FL's as my King of Strings..... but these were instant love. The tone is pure classic vintage Motown, 70's rock and funk flats on a P Bass tone. And unlike LaBella's...they sound perfect to me right out of the box. The feel is a little closer to that of the TI's which I really like too but the old school tone. So now I have to say that I am running a neck and neck three way tie between LaBella 760FL's, TI Jazz Flats and now the DR Legends. I just can't say enough about the tone and feel of these strings. I can not wait to get home tomorrow from work and play this bass again and it will certainly be in the gig bag going to my gigs this weekend!
