General What is your overall opinion of this product? The best of the best! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? You can pay a lot more, but you won't get better strings. I've been using the 165's for 8 years now, and have never popped a string! I have with other brands, but not these. Feel How is the feel of the strings? smooth, easy playing, easy on your frets, and fingers, they connect well, mimimal buzzing, very fast and smooth feel. Tone How did the strings affect your tone? Bright top end, with a good low end boom, excellent low end dynamics, super low end grunt and growl, but high notes ring like a piano! I changed my strings before last practice and got sevearl compliments on my tone! Referral Would you recommend this product to another player? Absolutely, Bass players are famous for not changing their strings often enough, well at these prices now you can! and get the best for less, no string sounds or plays better than these do, save your money and change your strings more often.
