    I´ve just installed a set of ETB92-5 in my 2011 $$ 'vette 5. They sound and play great although it takes some time to get use to the nylon. The tension is not as low as expected; I don't think I need to change the set up. Faced some trouble during installation. The fifth string needed a push to fit in the tailpiece and I took a "different" approach in the tuning peg side. ZERO ground hum BTW.

    If it is handy could you record something with the new strings? Never tried them :)
    And congrats for your first post after 5 years :)

    Sweet tone and great playing/feel! I wouldn't have guessed it's a $$ Corvette, more like an Ash Corvette or even an Alder RockBass. The strings obviously have their own thing going on there.

    They feel rubbery even with high action. The boomines is not hard to control with the bass knob and the midrange is really sweet. I would say the have a more organic sound in general, fitting well in acoustic set ups.
