Great sounding strings.

When I can justify buying a Fender P-Bass I will be using these strings for sure.

I'm a newbie to bass, but I've studied guitar since my teens. I bought the Ibanez bass starter kit a few months ago and even though the strings on that sound OK and basically do the job, the round wound strings naturally pick up a lot of that hand slide noise when you move from one position to another.

These strings cut that unwanted noise back quite dramatically. Plus they just sound so much fuller and "basier" (is that even a word?) than regular strings. No doubt due to the heavier gauge settings (.050; .075; .095; .110).

They glide so well that you can slide from 1st position to 12th position without hearing the movement, which is great for playing anything that requires many position changes.

They sound great when you're trying to thump out any Iron Maiden bass line, but I really like to play Black Sabbath bass lines with them because the sound is deep and heavy.

When I can justify buying a Fender P-Bass I will be using these strings for sure.

You may find that you have to adjust the action of your bass. I had to raise mine maybe 1mm before I got rid of the fret buzzing, but now I'm good to go.

They might be considered overkill for anyone other than a gigging player or at least someone in a garage band, but if you appreciate quality in anything then you'll appreciate these strings.

I learned to play Phantom of the Opera on guitar in my teens, so pounding out the intro bassline with these strings is magic.

If you're curious, just buy them, you won't regret it.

Update: 02/26/2007

This set is the same gauge as the Rotosound RS77LE, except that the silk ends of the strings sport the colours of Steve's favourite football team.

Don't put these on the Ibanez starter pack bass!

These rotosound flatwounds have TONS of bass, but its a bit bloated, not much mids and no highs, its like someone had a blanket over the bass amp, or a few. I have other flatwounds on my other basses. I put these on a new ibanez artcore afb200 bass, and after a quick setup to put things at a level I can handle, went to town with all sorts of runs and riffs and beats and riddems and walking bass lines, etc... it was not easy to get decent mids from these. popping brought out a wider sound spectrum, and they are wonderfully percussive. I'd like them to have a better high end.

overall, they are okay, but I will continue to search for flatwounds with some brightness to them.

I never tried flatwound strings or any strings made by Rotosound. Since I'm an Iron Maiden fan, I thought I'd try these on a P/J type bass. I selected these specific strings because my bass has a maple frettboard (not rosewood) and it really gives it a high end sound. The flatwounds, bring up the bottom end and tone down the high end to balance the bass out regardless of whether I favor my Precission pickups or the Jazz ones. The actual feel of these strings is not as rough as roundwound strings. However, since they are a very heavy gauge, I find myself working harder to press on the fretts. No big deal.

I switch back and forth between finger style and picking. For some odd reason, I thought you couldn't use a pick on flatwounds, but I was proven wrong. They definitely have a unique clear, but mellow sting to them when picked!

All in all, not bad for the price.

I put these on my Peavey Millenium 4 BXP. I had no issues with the tension of the strings vs. the neck as was mentioned in another review, although they definitely string up tighter than the lighter strings that I had been using. I play daily and have a definite feel for how my bass should sound.

As noted in the title, these flatwounds feel very nice to the fingers. Prior to buying these, I'd only played roundwounds and was delighted to get rid of the finger noise that comes with sliding my fingers down the neck. This was especially appreciated when using tapping techniques on the fretboard.

They look nice, they sounded nice, and they are very easy on the fingers.

That said, after they'd been on my bass for about a week, the A string went dead. It still played, but had a "thump" and a muted sound when I would play the string. The other strings still sounded right, but the third string just sounded wrong. We fiddled around with it and still couldn't get it to sound right. Upon closer examination, we found that the string had started to unwind under the blue silk up by the tuning post. I don't know if this was the issue, but it was the only visible difference between that string and the others.

I changed the strings out for some Ernie Ball Power Slinky strings (55-75-95-110) and it played right again. Sadly, I had to go back to the finger sounds as my fingers slid around on the strings. But, the Slinkys are half the price of the Rotosounds, and they sound fine.

When it comes time to change out my strings again, I will give the Rotosounds another shot, but, I was disappointed with how this set turned out. It could have been the way that I wound the posts, or, it could have been a quality control issue. I loved the feel of these strings and hope that my next set works out better than the first.
