Sorry to say, but I likely won’t be buying these basses again. I put them on the guitar, a Ramirez 4NE, on the 10th of December. Already, the basses are starting to sound dull. They have been on a month. And had about 30 hours of playing time on them. They lost the special quality of sound that they had when new.
The D string still[ looks practically new. I can see how, physically, they would last a long tim as there is no discernible wear to the windings. But, after about 30 hours, these basses are nothing special. Where they once had this deep, dark presence with a little punch to them, now they leave me as unimpressed as I was with the Savarez Corum basses. They are smooth to the touch still, and aren’t squeaky. That part has remained.
It’s back to Cantiga city for me. I will try Peter’s recommendation of Pyramid SS next time, after I use my Cantigas, which to my ear sound excellent longer, and are one third of so the price.
