These are, in my opinion, a Great all around string for most music styles and have a fairly good life span. I started using the XL's quite a while back as I used 'OTHER' strings which were never available or soon became unavailable at a lot of different places I would play. I like consistancy and would sometimes have to use 'OTHER' brands which were okay but would seem to have different tensioning, etc. which would absolutely affect my tone and feel. The D'Addario XL's excelled in that they felt good, sounded good, are fairly easy on the frets and most of all, were and are available at almost any music store you may find yourself in around the country. And sometimes you never know when you are on tour when that time comes when you may need strings in a big way. The consistancy of them being readily available almost anywhere is a big factor to me because in those situations you can have the same strings that you AND your bass are most use to...To me thats sometimes a priceless asset! I use two basses most of the time, so splitting the workload between the two also give the strings a longer life all the way around as you are not playing one set of strings to death all the time. Great TONE till the Cow's Come Home, In my opinion anyway, but you know what they say about opinion's!!!

I put these on a Pedulla Thunderbolt that I have and it really hurt the tone of the bass (with upgraded Audere preamp and Norstrand DC pickups). I can't say that the strings were on the border of lifeless, but there were absolutely no dynamics - there was something missing. I have been happy with Carvin, Ernie Ball, and DR strings, but these strings I wouldn't buy again. I removed them after a couple of hours of play, put on a set of Carvin's, and my bass had a lot more growl.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL170-5TP 5-String Bass Guitar Strings (2 Sets):

      I have been a guitar player for about 51 years and a Bass player for about 40 years. I use different brands of guitar strings but when it comes to Bass Strings, I always buy D'Addario. They have great tone and last forever. I just bought a new 5 string Bass and the strings that came on it were lower quality, SO, I replaced them with a new set and buying two sets at once saves money too. Great deal AND I have a backup set.

              This strings have been the best for me, gone through Rotosounds, DR , and many cheaper brands. Only LaBella ( custom gauges) have been similar, though more expensive.

                        The EXL 170-5TP are excellent for finger picking, slapping and popping. I've been buying the two-set for about two years. I highly recommend buying this set. They're as good as the famous player named strings. I buy the same for my four string.
