D'Addario ECB81M Chromes Regular Light Medium Scale Electric Bass Strings are famed for their smooth feel and warm, mellow tone. The strings are wound using an outer flattened, "ribbon" wire which is then polished to a smooth finish. Chromes deliver a deep, rich low-end tone that's ideal for jazz and R&B, but also has applications in contemporary pop music.

    Comments about D'Addario ECB81M Chromes Flat Wound Electric Bass Strings Light Medium Scale:

    I put these on my '61 Reissue Hofner Cavern bass and they were just what was needed. The LaBella beatle Bass strings that I had on prior broke at the bridge much too easily and I read that same thing had happened to another reviewer. I will stick with D'Addario XL Chrome Flats for my Hofner from now on and they are priced much better than all other medium scale flats (at a proper gauge) for Hofner basses. I use the new D'Addario NYXL nickel round wounds on my solid body basses and those strings are killer !
    Thumbs up!

          Comments about D'Addario ECB81M Chromes Flat Wound Electric Bass Strings Light Medium Scale:

          I play country music professionally on a Gibson SG Standard bass. These flat wound strings help tone down some of the SG's growl. They seem to get warmer with age. The Chromes on there now are a year old and haven't lost any resonance. In fact, I've decided to keep playing them for a while longer before changing.
