Zyex strings

Recommended Posts

I think it's time I put new strings on my Engehardt ES 9 bass and Mark Gollihur recommends Zyex for Kays  and Engelhardts. I play pizz on gigs but  use the bow at home sometimes when I am practicing and apparently these strings are not too bad with a bow.The bass came with ten year old Corelli 370 F strings and they are getting pretty dead.

Any input about Zyex strings would be appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for the info, I think I'll order a set.

Yes, I have tried them out on someone else's bass (Mr Bassman) and I was quite impressed - they were much brighter than my Evah's but they did Arco and pizz very well.

Thanks, that's exactly what I was hoping to hear. I will order a set today and hope they get here before Christmas, our Canadian postal system still has a backlog due to a recent strike by their employees.
