Just put these awesome strings on my artist jazz bass. Beefy slinky has a great tone down low, and never sounds muddy. the high notes are still crystal clear, which is amazing for such thick gauge strings. they keep tension really well in low tunings. I've got my bass tuned BEAD at the moment and the sound is still super tight. I would recommend these strings to anyone with a 4 string bass, who likes drop tuning their bass. all in all, I can't recommend these strings enough, their playability is great, their sound is great and they are of the highest quality. Also the customer service from artist guitars is great, I have bought from them multiple times and their shipping times are always fast, there is never any problems with payment or anything like that and they are friendly and always willing to help with a question
