    Comments about Rotosound RS885LD Trubass Black Nylon Flatwound Strings:

    These strings are an old favorite of mine.. T hey are buttery smooth, with a jazzy rounded tone. I have been playing more fretless and upright bass than usual, and ive noticed having purchased a set of these for a fretless dean accoustic and vintage aria fretless electric 5 recently, that i like these strings best on fretted basses.. On my fretkess instruments, they lack the bite and tone of round wound metal, and are a little too wompy.. On a fretted bass, in my opinion, comfortable, versatile, and soo nice all around.. If youve never tried them, you just may like them a lot and The fender nylons are fine strings as well..

    The sound of these strings is perfect for rock, jazz ,country whatever you play as long as you are playing the role of the bass player. Smooth low tension buzz free, easy on the frets and fingers. The rapping on the ends are flawless and made with care. You can get the tone of an upright bass to any usable electric bass sound you could want. If you slap these strings are not for you unless you like the old school slap tone. I am a groove player, these strings are my sound.
