Lifeless
ZiltoidTheOmniscient, 20.06.2018
I had never tried stainlesss steel strings before and was excited to hear the super-bright tone this material promised. And at a bargain price!

After taking off a set of D'Addario EXL-170s which are nickel-wound strings, I was very disappointed to hear the Rotosounds were duller than the three-month-old D'Addarios. Not only that but the B-string sounded like complete mud in comparison. And these were brand new!

For what it's worth, this was on an Ibanez SR605, so you may experience different results with a different bass.

Great ss strings
18.11.2015
As stainless strings enthusiast I must admit that those are one of my favorites, but they have a major drawback - they don't last long.

Pros
- aggressive bright sound
- lots of zing when fresh
- vacuum packed
- silk wrapped at the end to protect the machine heads

Cons
- don't last long (after a single 40 minute gig they went almost completely dead, and I don't even sweat much)
- non tapered B (issue for some)
- a bit rough on the fingers
- unusual A string thickness (0.80)

Great value for money
Black Bear Studio, 15.05.2018
Nice bright sound and quite long lifetime. I use this set of fretless bass and it sounds great. After a long time of using flatwound strings now I feel that my bass is a new instrument. Maybe not important detail but the red string endings look cool.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
