Rotosound? The best!

I've used Rotosound pretty consistently in my 40 years as a professional musician. I did use DR and Dunlop Marcus Miller signature strings for awhile, but I have a high akeline content in my sweat and thus they don't hold up as well as the British Steel in Rotosound's do. So I will more than likely use these strings until I finish my career!

Big difference

Had played Rotosounds years ago on my B.C.Rich and loved the sound it had,I assumed it was just the bass.Have a thunderbird now after being away from music for awhile and was happy with the sound of it but was time for some new strings.Not knowing what strings were stock on it went with some swing bass strings and couldn't believe the difference in tone.Customer for life.P.S. if Sweetwater carries it that's who I am buying it from,best customer service in the business.

First time trying these.

For years I've been playing on Ernie Ball and D'Addario strings. I just stick to what I'm used to. Today I decided to see what the hype of Rotosound bass strings was all about. Restrung my '78 Rickenbacker 4001 with a pair of these and was instantly pleased with the tone. Needless to say I'll be playing on these strings on all my basses from now on.

Best overall in my book

I have used roto-sound strings for 30+ years. I've tried the rest, GHS, D Addario, Peavy and Fender, and none of them sounded as good or lasted as long, with moderate to heavy use.
Music background: Live, working, Rock, blues, prog rock, and country.

Simply the Best!

Always loved Rotosound Strings. I turned away years ago to another brand but, ended up coming back. A little hard on frets but, I love the sound and feel of these strings, especially when you really lean into it.
