I got a set for my bass and some .11's for my strat. Frickin awesome. The bass strings are silky, smooth, balanced, and sweet. Very musical, excellent definition and dynamics. The guitar strings were really strident at first, like extra loud and "serious," steely sounding. And now that they've broken in with a few days of playing they're just perfect. Right about the time that most strings would be getting dull and dead sounding, these things are just hitting their stride. I love 'em.
