These are great strings, and a good value for money.\nI put them on my son's bass (an Eastwood) and he noticed the difference right away. Mind you, I had 10+ year old strings on there before. I should've replaced them a while back. I put Slinkys on my Stratocaster, thought I'd try Slinkys on my bass, definitely a worthwhile investment.

Excellent feel to these strings and I'm able to get the sound out of them that I want. They are playing through EMG Geezer Butler pups into a Traynor SB-115. Rich sound with a bit of a "growl" is the sound I'm getting.

I am just starting to use these strings having tried a lot of different brands. My first impression was excited and having used them for a while my overall impression is positive. Like most nickel strings, they don't retain their brightness for long but that is to be expected. What they do have is 1) great brightness to begin with lasting for about a week of playing say 3 hours per day 2) excellent tension and response to vibrato and bending. I was really surprised at how well they transferred the subtle tones of these techniques. 3) great smooth feel. You can really slide down the neck on these things and it feels like you're fingers are gliding over silk. 4) stability- once broken in, you give up the chimey brightness but in return you get a really stable string holding tuning really well. I like them more than most strings I've played. They really remind me of maxima/optima Chrome's right out of the box with just about the same brightness and feel, however Chrome's do maintain their brightness much longer but good luck trying to get a set these days and you can do 4-5 string changes with the Slinkys for the same price as 1 set of Chrome's.
