            These are my go-to strings for short scale basses. If you use roundwound's, you can't go wrong with these! Long lasting, good tone and great price.

              These Electric Bass strings were used on my Hofner electric bass. They have great sound, and stay in tune nicely.

              Way too bright...

              Comments about D'Addario EXL220S XL Nickel Super Light Short Scale Electric Bass Strings:

              I bought these for a Fender Musicmaster Bass. Normally, I'm a big D'Addario fanboy since I love their guitar strings. However, these strings are quite terrible for my tastes and make my short scale basses sound lifeless. I did a direct comparison with the Fender 5250XL strings on my Bronco Bass and there was no comparison. The Fender had a great tone, getting a great full sound with a pick, whereas these EXL220S, they sound OK fingerstyle, but terrible picked, unless you roll the tone. I'm someone who likes a bass to sound good with the tone all the way up, so these just don't cut it for me. Well made strings, though.
