These strings have an absolutely beautiful dark, mellow sound. They sound great on my acoustic bass and allow my fingers to glide across the strings, considering they are nylon flatwounds. The strings can be most famously heard on "Come Together" by The Beatles, for which I believe Paul McCartney used a fretted Rickenbacker 4001. I would recommend these strings to anyone who wants to reduce fret noise and create a somber tone to their music. Plus, these strings a black, which provides an aesthetically pleasing alternative to the shining stainless steel on most other strings.
