Rotosound RS55LD Solo Bass Stainless Steel Bass Guitar Strings
These pressurewound bass guitar strings, which are handmade in England, sound fabulous on my frettless GWB1 bass. First thing that comes to mind is the nice deep, full and even tonal sound they produce. I've used the Rotosound Swing Bass strings and love the sound but, man they hurt my fingers. The RS55LD Stainless Steel pressurewonds are relieve the pressure on my fingers and they have a much smoother touch.
According to Musicians Friend this string has 3 advantages over the conventional roundwound:
1) Smooth feel that is ideal for fretless bass and studio work
2) No finger noise/reduced fretwear
3) Retains the brightness of the roundwound string
I would fully agree with this advantages and truly believe that Rotosound makes the highest quality electric bass strings geared for those bass players who want full tonal control.
