          These are like Goldilocks strings: Not too bright (like stainless steels can be) not to dull (like flats can be) -- just right. If you need one set that can cover a lot of bases -- no pun intended -- these are a good choice.

              Comments about D'Addario EXL170 Nickel Wound Bright Round Wound Electric Bass Strings:

              I have a LOT of basses and each has their use. Some for performance, some for practice, some for their sound and some just for their looks. I get good life, tone and quality plus they make strings in short scale which not everyone does. (These are long scale.)

              The D'Addarrios are a great string for most every need that I have and allow me to change strings more regularly on my practice basses. Plus the Rewards Program that D'Addario offers along with their new Recycle Program where I can get more points for any string give me an incentive to use their strings more and more.

                Well XL strings are very cheap as well as very long lasting and smooth. when you first buy them the sound new like a little rattle kind but when you use them for a while it starts getting used to the bass and then sounds real smooth. And Tom Araya From the band Slayer uses them so they must be good anyways good strings must buy!!!
