    Comments about D'Addario EXL165 XL Nickel Round Wound Soft/Regular Bass Strings:

    I just restrung my Epiphone Thunderbird IV Goth today with these. I instantly fell in love with how smooth they play, even while using a Pic for songs like Beast and the Harlot by Avenged Sevenfold.

    Comments about D'Addario EXL165 XL Nickel Round Wound Soft/Regular Bass Strings:

    I just put these on my Ibanez GSR 200 Soundegear Bass and it sounds sweet. I'd been playing the factory strings for 6 months (way too long!) and it was time for a change. The only other type I've played was a set of GHS Medium Boomers on a Squier Precision, which was alright. These strings sound great with active pickups! Get them!

      Comments about D'Addario EXL165 XL Nickel Round Wound Soft/Regular Bass Strings:

      Very seldom do I replace bass strings! There's a running joke that I replace bases so I don't have to restring.
      These went on well, Even with making neck adjustments and un-tuning them multiple times to remove the neck and putting a spacer in, they held up well. Lesser strings would of broke. So, my "cheap, old, refurbished bass" is a real player again.

        Comments about D'Addario EXL165 XL Nickel Round Wound Soft/Regular Bass Strings:

        I have been a pretty consistent Rotosound user for no other reason than they were on the first bass I ever owned. These DAs were recommended by a friend and were not too expensive so I picked them up... and I'll never go back. I love these strings! They were not expensive, installed easy, sound great, and are easy on the fingers (even as roundwounds). I've been using them for roughly 30 days.
