    Hi Raul,
    I’ve just watched your review of Dark Horse Strings and must say I agree with your assessment. I put a set on in Dec. 2010 and they are still on my bass. Normally by now I would have changed my string at least twice due to how much I play and how hard or breakage. I’ve play (almost) every string out there from cheap to expensive and these are the best string yet. One might think I’m a little biased because of my affiliation with Dark Horse but that relationship exist because of the string quality and the companies commitment to a superior product.
    Thanks for Listening’

    Hey Jimmy,

    You are exactly correct, these strings keep on trucking! They have been on since October and are still going strong!

    Always happy to share good stuff!

    Thanks for checking our our review,
