Great bass string...

I got these to go on my all black bass guitar, it even has black hardware, now it even has black strings! First impression is very good, very nice bright, ringing tone, has that piano like punch....without being harsh. The black coating looks very cool, and seems robust. Although a brighter sounding string, it has a dark richness to it. The "E" string is not dull, as is my fear for most bass string brands, instincts indicate that these will be a long lasting string. Even though, they are smaller gauge, the tension seems somewhat on the stiff side, or tight....but not to the extreme. Only minor gripe would be the rainbow color, cloth thread wraps on the end, I would prefer the whole string to be black. Just want to add that my Sweetwater rep is Jimmy Hart, and is the only one here that I will deal with. Also, thanks for the candy thrown in the package!

great strings

I've been an elixir polyweb user since i started playing guitar, but these absolutely have taken over as my go to bass strings. Not only are they quality strings, they also look extremely sexy since they are like jet black. They play really smooth and the sound is not compromised with the coating.
