S I T Strings Electric Bass Power Wound Nickel Extra Long, .045 - .105 (Fits G&L), NR45105XLBryanFebruary 10, 2015I've played bass professionally for 30 years and I've tried most every major brand of string. I always came back to D'Addario thou I used DR's for a while. I never tried SIT's, I had it in my head that they were a "cheap" brand. This was fueled by rarely ever seeing them in a music store or mentioned by artist in Bass Player. Finally at the Dallas Guitar Show I picked up a really nice Low End Jazz Bass. Loved the bass and equally dug the strings. To my surprise they were SIT's. I now use them on ALL my basses. 4 and 5 strings, active and passive, even my acoustic bass guitar! I've never been able to use 1 brand on everything before! The tone is wonderful, somewhat like D'Addarios but with a sweeter, more controlled top end and a bit more focused midrange. The bottom is a bit more taught, great for slap and finger style. I rarely use a pick but works there also. I've turned numerous people I know on to them and so far everyone that has tried them has switched. At this price you Need to give them a try and see if they work for you!

Bought this set and was very impressed with the sound and quality. Stays in tune as advertised and will be adding this brand to the top of my list. Won't find a better quality bass string at this price.

Looking for a new string after Fender bass strings dropped in quality, research showed that G&L used to use SIT. I am going to faithfully stick to them for both guitar and bass. They feel good, last and somehow really stay in tune better. The fact that they are low cost should embarrass some other string makers charging twice as much for equivalent product.

I use them on my 80s and 90s G&Ls and love the sound. I have pulled off lot's of other strings and replaced with these and they are the best for my application. They do stay in tune for a remarkably long time. I don't like how brite they are at first but they calm down after a week or so of playing. Reb
