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 ECB84 Chromes Flat Wound Custom Light Long Scale Electric Bass Strings:

      I particularly like the 40-100 Chromes flatwounds because the tension is more balanced across the strings than a 45-100 set. This even-balance makes the string sets more like TI, but at half the price. I use them on all my basses.

          Comments about D'Addario ECB84 Chromes Flat Wound Custom Light Long Scale Electric Bass Strings:

          I am a begginer at the bass, but I do have a strong background in music. I love the sound of these strings, and the feel is smooth and clean. I am find that I am able to practice significantly longer with these strings than I can with the round wound stings that came with my bass.

            I was a user of rounds all my life until two years ago when I strung the PBass with a set of these. Great sounding for any style of music.

              Comments about D'Addario ECB84 Chromes Flat Wound Custom Light Long Scale Electric Bass Strings:

              This string set has a light G string, which avoids the "twangy" sound that you sometimes get with a G string. I think the set sounds similar the Tomastic flat wounds, but a a lower price. I use them on Precision and Jazz basses and they help me get an old school sound.

              Bright Flats

              By Bongo Bass

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about D'Addario ECB84 Chromes Flat Wound Custom Light Long Scale Electric Bass Strings:

              These do have some texture to them not quite smooth as ice but on the upside they are bright...well for flats. Good solid tone and growl lower action with the flats and a bit more tension from a thinner string so quite responsive if you hve moved from the custom light roundwound. Not a slaper but does give a kind of thud that sticks if you slap could be a sound kind of like a percussive finger attack not bad. Well try to find them cheap and givem a try. Less fret ware lower action growl and low end warm thud brighter than any flats I have heard for good mids. For me a winner
