: : 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. I HAVE A STEINBERGER XL2 BASS, ONE OF THE FIRST MADE AT THAT. IT CAME WITH PIANO STYLE STRINGS ON IT.....I WONT USE ANYTHING ELSE. UNFORTUNATLY ROTOSOUND HAS DISCONTINUED IT. IT WAS CALLED SUPERWOUND 606, THE SOUND OF A PIANO STYLE STRING IS FULL AND THE HARMONICS ARE INCREADIBLE. THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY. FOR INTONATING THEY ARE VERY PRECISE. I CANT GET EM FOR MY BASS ANYMORE BUT IF YOU HAVE A XTANDARD STYLE BASS...TRY EM YOU`LL LOVE EM ...ED
