Pretty Cool Strings.....

Comments about Rotosound Nexus Polymer Extra Light Coated Bass Strings:

I recently purchased these strings and put them on my Schecter Raiden 4 to replace the original strings, which I believe were D'Addarios. I wasn't sure about what to put on and had been toying with flatwounds, but since I'm not much of a jazz player and I've been doing a lot of slap and pop lately I decided to stay with roundwounds. I have to say I am very impressed with Rotosound quality and sound. The black coating is very, very smooth and eliminates some of the discomfort associated with roundwound bass strings. I bought the extra lights because I had read in a few places that the coating can cause problems on the E string due to the increased thickness (read about a couple cracked nuts here and there). After opening the package I was impressed with the slick looking black strings with the colored wraps. Nice touch! They installed as easy as they should. When I tuned the bass up and started to play.....all I have to say is "wow". The tone is crisp and "just right" for what I was looking for. Not muddled at all, but not overly bright, either. The low tones are a little weak, where these shine is in the mid and high tones. Great strings if you play a lot of blues or classic rock. Adjusting my tone/vol knobs and switching between hum/single coil pups (my bass has a coil tap) results in far more varied tones than I was able to get with the original strings. In addition, I find these still work really, really well for slap and pop, so I see no reason not to use them for this application. I can't comment on the longevity as I've only had them a few weeks, but I do play daily for at least an hour and so far.......so good. Based on what I'm seeing.......Rotosounds are absolutely great and I would not hesitate to buy these strings again! I gave them an 8 because they are a little weak on the low tones. But, I guess you'd expect that from an extra light bass string. Other than that, a great string in my opinion!
