    New Favorite Strings for bass

    Asked Sean for Elixers on a new Jazz Bass last year. They were out so He recommended the Black Beauties and I said go ahead. Best decision I ever made. Have played Elixers for ever it seems but these are punchier and seem "tighter" for longer than the Elixers were. They also look amazing on my bass. DR all the way now.

    Might sound vain but just chose a new acoustic base based on which would look best with Black Beauties :)

    Lovely

    Great strings, and they look great too on my new Blacktop P bass!
    They're like butter across your fingers or pick and may have opened me up to roundwound strings as previously I swore by flatwound.
    If you're in my previous position where you're not a fan of roundwound or have no interest in them, I highly recommend giving these a try before you stick to heavily to that idea, as these strings are just a delight to play.

    Punchy, Cool Looking

    This was my first foray into the world of coated strings for bass. For my P bass, I was going to go with Elixers, which I know are great, but I figured I'd take a crack at these since they were like $10.00 cheaper. Good move. They have great punch through my Little Mark II head (with Epifani 2x10 cabinet). Strong bottom end, made even strong when I play through my Aphex Exciter/Big Bottom. We'll see how they last, but boy, my first impression was so good that I bought a set for my Jazz, too.
