    Comments about D'Addario EPBB170 PB Soft Acoustic Bass String Set:

    I recently purchased my first bass guitar, a Dean Acoustic bass. Many reviews on this guitar recommended replacing the factory strings immediately with a set of these EPBB170 PB Soft Acoustic Bass String Sets. After a few minutes with the factory strings I immediately placed an order. What a world of difference in both sound and feel as compared to the much larger gauge factory strings. This simple change of strings was the best investment I could have made and has greatly improved my enjoyment of this bass and really motivated me to practice and thoroughly enjoy learning to play my new bass.

    Not that impressed.

    Comments about D'Addario EPBB170 PB Soft Acoustic Bass String Set:

    I tried these after I noticed that Tacoma had changed their recomended string from Elixers to these. Wear time aside, the Elixirs sounded much better. These sound mediocre. They don't have the full rich roundness the Elixers had.The dead Elixirs sound better and I may put them back after boiling them and see how they sound.I will spend the extra money and put the Elixirs back on it next time.

    Finaly found the right strings

    Comments about D'Addario EPBB170 PB Soft Acoustic Bass String Set:

    I've tried many strings for my AE Bass and wasn't fully satisfied until I tried these. I've tried Ernie Ball, Elixir, Martin and Fender Acoustic Bass strings and none of them impressed me. The D'Addarios sound and play great!

    D'Addario Does it Again

    By ILove2PlayBass

    from Jacksonville, FL

    Comments about D'Addario EPBB170 PB Soft Acoustic Bass String Set:

    D'Addario acoustic strings stand up to the test of time. I use them exclusively on my electric bass. When it came time to replace my strings on my acoustic base, it was a no-brainer, and I have not been disappointed. The strings hold up very well, and produce great tone, both acoustically, and when I plug the bass in.
