Best strings ever for slap or fusion

Comments about D'Addario EXL220 XL Nickel Round Wound Super Light Bright Electric Bass Strings:

I've been playing bass for over 20 years. I used to work at The Guitar Center in San Francisco, and was able to try many different brands, and guages. I like Mark King, and Geddy Lee style of playing, and I've found that D'Addario extra light are the easiest to play, with quick response, bright tone, and they are easy on the fingers, because they are soft. They are my favorite brand, and guage, by far !

More Bang For Your Buck

By Wes Sperry

Comments about D'Addario EXL220 XL Nickel Round Wound Super Light Bright Electric Bass Strings:

I have used many strings in the 20-some years I have been playing bass. The D'Addario strings are the best I have used so far. They have a nice bright tone and they really last! There are strings that sound just as good or even better but they don't have the life-span.

    Comments about D'Addario EXL220 XL Nickel Round Wound Super Light Bright Electric Bass Strings:

    I thought the round wound strings wouldn't be as comfortable to play as flat wounds, but I'm pleased with the feel and the brighter sound. Worth the try. Not as much 'finger noise' as I thought there would be either. Will definitely buy them again.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL220 XL Nickel Round Wound Super Light Bright Electric Bass Strings:

      These are good strings. Good tone. Well balanced and they don't break the bank. I use several different sets of strings but these are always in rotation and I can't say one bad thing about them. I use them on all my Fender jazz basses and they perform like many strings I've used that cost twice the price. If you want a very good string that doesn't break the bank these would be worth a try!

        These roundwounds have never let me down. They are consistent and awesome. They gave me the pingy, metallic, almost piano like sound good I want.
