Very happy

This is my first fretless, and wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was a beautifully made instrument that's even easier to play than a fretted bass, with amazing sustain and sounds just like you would expect it to. I can't put it down! The only reason I gave 4 stars is for the electronics, but it's nothing that can't be addressed after market, and still come out cheaper than buying a big brand.

I used the thickest 4 strings from this 5 string set to turn transform a cheap 4 string bass. Now I have a low B to match my Ibanez Universe. Haha. These are some smooth strings too. A world of difference over the rough and nasty stock strings.

Great strings been buying them for over a year used in recordings and at gigs for the price it's worth trying them for yourself

I have been using Artist strings for awhile now, with gigging most weekends, they haven't lost any freshness, and sound great.

Great Value for the Money

Surprisingly good strings tor the price. They wound on and tuned up OK. Seem to intonate OK. Havent had them long enough to see how well they will wear though.

Strings seem good so far, have not had any problems. I think they are just as good as any other brand. The price is fantastic and fast delivery.What more could you ask for.

Steer Clear of these ones

I knew these were budget strings when I bought them but I did not expect to snap a B string tuning it for the first time ! That's the big heavy B string. The other 4 do sound fine. But now I have to order another set. My advice is spend a little more get a better set of strings.

I have used these strings on four occassions now simply to freshen the sound of my bass and add that "sparkle" we all love. They are fine - no problems with them at all. They don't last like the "brand name" cousins but they do a great job if you replace them regularily. At less than $10 per set in the six pack buy I can keep pace with the guitarists and not bust my bank.

Worst Strings ever

By: on 14 June 2015
I bought these strings a few months ago before one of my gigs, I went to string my bass the day before my gig and the strings didn't properly reach the machine heads! Once all strung, I realised that the strings were completely taught and flat against the neck of the guitar making it impossible to play. Bad strings, do not buy how do I rate 0/5 lmao Artist Reply: Sorry for the trouble with the strings Brock! This sounds like a factory fault - They should reach the machine heads with plenty to spare. We'll happily replace or refund these for you, but can't find your order details. Just call or email us and we'll fix it up for you.
