I ordered a set last week but they're back ordered. I heard some recordings of them and they do sound nice. I figured it was worth a try.

Got a set on one of my jazz basses... a little bright for me right now. Waiting for the strings to mellow, hopefully in a day or so. [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]

I put some on my Bongo 5 and tried them on a gig last night. They sound great in the mix. When I put them on they did sound bright. Brighter than I usually like but they did settle down quickly. They sound deep and yet they have lots of mids and highs. It's hard to describe but they do good.
