The most perfect 5 string bass set ever!!!
By John Jess Gutierrez from on 5/10/2016
 
These are the best strings I have ever played on. I love their tone and easy play ability. Chords ring out with them. Solos are smoother sounding. Of course real groove playing is matchless with these strings. Thanks, John J. Gutierrez
