    Polished basses reduce string noise; better 3rd & 2nd projection.

    I used to change the string every 6 months with every day play 2hours, this brand can last long time, the the price is nice. The most important is l like the tone very much, and as time goes buy it keep the tone very well.

    The strings are very comfortable to play. Despite the pleasant tension they have the powerful sound of high tension strings. The sound can easily be formulated. The harmonics are very clear and the colors are unique!

    I like the combination because D'Addario is consistent in making strings. They sound warm and mellow but in the same time bright with a long sustain. I think they bring forth the greatness in every instrument.?

    Best bass-treble balance among all others on my guitar that are brilliant and clear. Normal tension strings work well without tensing my fingers. Can be used for weeks without the sound and sense of old ones.
