I recently purchased one of the new (2021) Hofner Ignition PRO Club basses. One of their distinguishing features is that the come stock with flats. Unfortunately the factory flatwounds on this new model left a lot to be desired. The E string was completely dead, and sounded like someone smacking the side of a timpani with a manila folder (no fundamental, lots of weird harmonics). It’s no secret that Hofner flats are usually Pyramids, but in the case of this new budget model, I seem to doubt it.
Having never owned a Hofner before, I researched available options and landed on these. Let me tell you, it was a good choice. The feel of the strings is supple and remind me of the TI’s I have on my precision. The tone is balanced from string to string. They are way easier to intonate than the factory set. Tension on the light set is just about perfect. And most importantly, they sound thick but defined. With the bass solo switch engaged, they thump hard. With the treble solo switch engaged, they can cop a great tic-tac sound. They are incredibly versatile and complement each of the Hofner’s modes very well.
