Comments about Rotosound SM665 Swing Bass 5-String RoundwoundBass Strings:
Rotosound Swing Bass strings - I won't use anything else and a lot of other top players agree. There is a tone that comes from these that no other string I have ever tried is able to capture. I started using them in the early 80's on a P-Bass. They made it sound growly and aggressive but well balanced and surprisingly "Hi-Fi" when recording direct. No other string (nickel, stainless, cryo-treated, etc) I have used in over 30 years of playing bass has the same sweet tone and mid-range definition. My basses are mostly 5 string now with on-board pre-amps... and I still find that Swing Bass strings have superior tone. Take my advice and try a set of these before you spend your money on anything else. These really are the best you can get at any price.
