Took getting used to but I'm in love

Comments about Rickenbacker 95511 Electric Bass 4 String Set (45-105):

I just picked up electric bass having played an acoustic my whole life. I got my hands on a Peavey T40 from 1980 and it had old nasty strings prob from around then. The bassist in my band recommended trying Rick strings and having played his 4003 before, I was apprehensive due to how light the gauge felt compared to the cable wire on my acoustic. Now that I've been playing it all week, I find that I can achieve the same tone just by playing drastically lighter, and that I in fact had way more control over the tone / expression based on the velocity of my plucks/double thumbs. Highly recommend these to folks who want to do singing bends and have a whoooole lot of dynamics to their slap/thump.

          Comments about Rickenbacker 95511 Electric Bass 4 String Set (45-105):

          These are the best string I've found for my Ric, which might be due to the unique gauge Rickenbacker uses. It really does fit the best. I've tried other strings, mainly the same Rotosound 66s I use on other basses. While these gave me a great tone with the bass they never felt right, even the lighter sets. I was skeptical of the Ric strings due to the odd Gauge but gave them a shot. The tension is perfect and the tone sounds great. I'm quite happy with these, but I don't understand why other companies don't market sets with the Rickenbacker gauge. Seems like an easily filled void in the market.

            I only use these Rickenbacker strings on my 1973 4001 Rick. They sound great and Sam Ash I one of the few places that carry them at a fair price. Kudos Sam Ash.

              Comments about Rickenbacker 95511 Electric Bass 4 String Set (45-105):

              These are they same strings that came on my 4003. I play flatwounds on my Fender Precision and Jazz bass, but I like tbe sound of these on my Rickenbacker. Due to injury, I play everything with a pick. These strings really capture the brightness of the pick well. I also use GHS Fast Fret to clean them after playing, I know there are many theories and techniques for cleaning strings, but I have found this works well and extends their lifespan.

                    These are the real Rickenbacker factory strings - apparently Sam Ash hasn't updated their photo. The package has a picture of a 4001/4003 Jetglo on the insert. Can't beat this price anywhere!

                    Everyone else sells these for close to ten dollars more. This is a great price and they are sent quickly.. What more can you ask?

                      The Ric double-truss rod bass neck can be tempermental. I tried using Roto-Sounds, but the neck on my bass would never stay straight. Ric strings work best.
