    Comments about D'Addario EXL160BT Balanced Tension 50-120 Long Scale Electric Bass String Set:

    I purchased this product because I am starting to do a project in C Standard tuning. I usually play in E Standard so regular gauges just didn't cut it. Way too much flop. Put these on and wow, the tension is there for C standard and the strings are alive. I play with my fingers so having the balanced tension really helped at the lower tuning. I was afraid that the lowest string would be too big to fit in the nut but it was just big enough to fit in there snug, no popping out. I think they put a lot of thought into this product, I will probably buy a few sets to have around in case they decide to stop making this line.

        Actually, I dont like D'addario very much but they have few special strings set. Perhaps is the only one who launch out balanced tension type of strings on the market. Very good and usefull ideea.
