I've only used the Alabastro basses, but I have to say that they sound good as they age. Surprisingly good. Sad that they don't last forever like the treble strings do.
I'm exaggerating there as the trebles don't actually last forever. They just seem to. And that would depend on the abrasiveness of your nails, certainly.
Strings are always an adventure. Trying a new set of strings is like trying out a new mic for recording... a new filter to listen to your playing through. We're in a golden age of guitar strings, I think. Thanks, Mimmo, should you see this, for your part in that.
