    These Strings really bring the Bass

    After purchasing a Fender Squire Short-Scale Jaguar Bass with stock [roundwound] strings, I was disappointed in the sound I was obtaining from the strings played through the guitar. After reading reviews of these flatwounds, I decided to go ahead and give these a try to make my bass more suitable to my taste...
    Boy do these flatwounds make a difference! I was not getting nearly as much low end from my stock roundwounds as these! Along with a plentiful amount of Jazzy low-end, these flatwounds blew me away with the amount of attack they produced! A very impressive thumpy, solid, and clear attack (almost like in Jazz records). This is by far the cheapest, best sounding upgrade I could have made for my bass!

    Strings that fit

    These fin my short scale Epiphone EBO like a glove. Love flat wound strings and these play great with a nice rich sound.

    Turning junk into pretty good!

    First, I know what you're thinking...This is likely the cheapest bass there is ... I know. I have a Epiphone EB 0. Came with round wound strings. sounded bad and played worse. they were also set a mile high. I installed these Roto Sound flat wounds and lowered them, ....what a difference. Plays really nice and sounds great too. Its just kind of a toy, but its a decent playing and sounding toy now!

    The best IMO

    I used these on my P Bass and J Bass. I was a little reluctant to use .040-.090 strings on my Allen Woody short scale bass. Don`t worry, they`re great! I love my old Fenders but that Epi with these strings may be my new #1 pick. It has just the right touch of a woody sound that rocks! Easy playing background or really aggressive. Easy on the fingers and never sticky. No more experimenting for me.

    Get 'Em

    Made my cheaper Squire Short Scale Bass sound twice as good. Best and cheapest upgrade you can make to the sound.

    RS77S Jazz 77 string review

    Went to flat wound over round wound...what a great mellow tone and silky feel.

    Best of the class

    These were purchased for my short scale Fender and the net result has been a substantial increase in output, a more defined, up front attack than other flat wounds I've used and a tone that is simply more pure and beautiful !

    Short Scale Jazz 77

    These strings play and sound wonderful, however the short scale length is really short. I put a set on a friend's short neck hofner bass and the colored fabric came onto the neck's nut. barely long enough to work properly. Use caution when you are purchasing these, the regular length may be more desirable.

    Smooth feeling strings

    These strings are very soft to play. Your fingers simply slide up and down the neck with ease. The sound is very warm. I strongly feel these are the best bass strings available. Sweetwater will get 'em to you quickly and at a good price.
