These bass strings, though, are easily as bright and bouncy when new as most bass players would wish for, and retain a brighter tone for much longer, as with their acoustic guitar cousins.
These strings do cost about three times as much as a set of conventional strings, and experience with Elixirs suggests they are no less likely to break, so these would not be a good investment for players who regularly break strings -- though, with bass guitar, regularly breaking strings is almost certainly a sign of a sharp edge somewhere on the bridge or fretboard. For those who like to have a consistently good tone throughout the life of the string, and want to avoid the week or so of 'zingyness' which accompanies new strings, these are ideal, and well worth the extra.
Strongly recommended for serious players.
A note on gauge.
These are Mediums, 0.045 to 0.105, rather than the 0.040 Lights that many people play with. On bass guitar there is no particular reason why Medium should be a problem, and heavier strings should normally give better tone. However, a bass with already very high action which for some reason cannot be lowered would not be suitable for going up a string gauge.
When I used to get non coated strings the tone would start out very bright and then just keep getting worse for ever. What I like about nano web is they start out with the sound of a slightly played in set and then pretty much stay that way forever. I have mostly gone several years between changes and even then it is because eventually they break, as do all strings in the end, but they still sound fine up to that point.
They are quite an expensive string in the first place but they last way longer and I'm sure they cost less in the long run.
They are more like a nylon string to play, with a smooth silky finish. They also have a rich full tone which being a La Bella aficionado I particularly like.
As for longevity. If, as they say, they last a working musician at least six months I probably wont ever have to buy another set. I'll ask my grandson to update this review in 25 years, HeHe.
I would definitely buy these again. Oh by the way the instrument I have them on is a four string Overwater Classic "J" bass.
