As a bassist who plays in multiple bands in very different genres, I am always on the lookout for strings that will hold up under many different playing conditions and support my style of playing. I can say I’ve finally found exactly what I was looking for….they tune up quick and stay in tune…they’re responsive and just sound flat out amazing no matter what style of music I’m playing. Whether it’s country, rock, or top 40 these strings give me exactly what I need as a performer and the gauges on the 5 string set are FIRE! If you’re a working bassist or a “weekend warrior” you NEED these strings! Proud to endorse Blue Magic!
