Ernie Ball
Bass Strings
Made in USA
Plated steel wire nickel and wound around a steel hex me.
040 .060 .070 .095

I use (I accuracy of all) on a "Steinberger Q4" (with the clamping device for headless).
I shot the hair to find some thing that could replace my excellent but very very chres double balls $$$ !! I'm not bald, but c'tait least! ;-) ) I (re) found a game that suits me.

I always love the 40/95 it is a very good compromise for bass which I use. (My jazz bass eg I prfrai rather 45/105).

Versatile, so hex me not too soft touch but still very pleasant (a minimum of grip without being a stroke cheese), slamming just right, good presence, a sound hot, hard reasonable life it seems (2 to 3 months for me).
It almost fit all styles and are relatively strong.

a really good string while with good sound !! (AC is a ?? ==> apparently yes)

So easy to find big production.
the choice of string is a perpetual frustration lol, but hey, if you do not know what to put on your coffee and you love a mean draft 40/95 with its correct Hypper, try them! there are certainly better and sharp, but the 2835 perfectly fulfill their duty!

the price between 20 and 25 euros on the internet (+ postage).

I will try soon cobalts of the same brand, but even when I will recommend this model to put in my set, it's all good reasonably priced !!

Good Q / P

Used to replace my D'addario same alloy and pulling on a 4 string given in drop B, the difference was immediately made to feel.

They are bright, but they are controlled and acute aging rather well. The touch is nice (similar to D'addario) nor too rough, not too slippery.
Suited for my game (mediator) they respond well to the attack, but if my serious lack of definition, so I went to Pyramid with a Low B Tuning If serious tapered, which gives a better definition.

But overall it is good strings.

good strings ..

I often bought in the past ...
Moreover, on my 6 string, it was often ernie ball that I put.
I tried lots of brands; Rotosound (brilliant, vintage sound), ken smith rock master (carved in rock, hence the name!), DR (really good!), Warwick (yuck!) , fender (out of my sight!), EBS (mouaif. ...), Labella (not bad, but too expensive in France!), d'addario (the worst string of creation) Fbass (this is the same as Labella, there's just scored Fbass above!) elixir (same sound as ernie ball except that the sound is muffled because of the coating!) Hartke (really bad quality!) ..... finally I think I go around ...
going back to her, well, they make clear the bass and treble, and to typically cliché, it is the sound musicman!
yes, it's particularly accurate, stuffed full of bass and treble making it the ultimate slap her!
Then, of course, when I'm sick of that sound, I buy Rotosound at its most vintage ...
for me, where I bought them (England) and at the price I paid (20 € including shipping) there's nothing to say, the price is unbeatable!
when you see that in France, in milonga, they sell the game to 38 € .... lets think here ... sometimes you wonder if they are not musicians for rabbits 6 weeks!
with experience, I continue to buy it say ...!

This is a draft standard that I play mostly rock fingers / pick. I tried a bunch of strings and finally I use especially those that are most commonly available in stores: they alternately and D'Addario. It seems to me as it lasts a bit longer but I could not say for sure.
