: : The first couple of years I played bass, I would just use any old damn strings so long as the label read "bass strings". Now I'm in the process of experimenting with different kinds and brands of strings. Recently I ran across a type of string made by Rotosound called "piano style". The name really perked my interest. Has anyone here used these types of strings? If so, what style of playing or music do you think they are best used for? Is the name just a gimmick? I just want to get some info on them before I decide to fork over $30 for a set.

Hi Brian. The strings you're talking about may be similar to the set that came shipped on my new Ibanez BTB. They look like piano strings. They have tappered ends on both ends. They sound great, but one of the strings was defective and made a nasty buzz when I would slap an open A. I'm gonna' go get myself a set of the strings you mentioned.
