    EXCELLENT ON A FRETLESS

    Comments about D'Addario EXL170-6 Nickel Round Wound 6 String Long Bass Strings:

    These sound and feel excellent on my Fender 6 string. I purchased med-light , downsized from the standard medium strings. For my taste, the lighter strings were a good choice.
    I purchased a separate B string, went down to a .125 guage, which I am happy with. However, I have consistently had issues with the B string being slightly quieter than the other strings. These are better than the DR strings I had (.130 B), but not as consistent (even) as the Fender set.
    I'll stick with these as they are the only available nickel plated in this lighter guage. I really like the high C .032, slightly thicker than most sets (.030), so not as twangy.
    I use Fender pure nickel on my fretless 4 string, sure would like to try pure nickel on this 6.
    They were all plenty long for through-body stringing on my 34" scale Fender.
    Feel very nice & soft. No complaints.
    at the average cost per string, it's a good value.

    Not long enough?

    By 

    from Greer, SC

    Comments about D'Addario EXL170-6 Nickel Round Wound 6 String Long Bass Strings:

    So i got these for christmas and tried them on my Rogue 6-string. I was happy with the tone and it sounded great. But the B and E string were too short. The strings as a whole were long enough, but the bottom two got thin too early. Im not sure what to buy if u have my problem. Dont buy if u own my bass.
