Strings with a natural round wound feel and a long lasting fresh and bright sound.

D'Addario EXPPR170 Reds Long Scale Regular Light Electric Bass Strings have an ultra-fine layer of EXP Coating that is bonded to the copper-plated steel outer wrap wire, which is then wound onto the hex-shaped core wire. The result is a built-in barrier against the corrosion and wear that can quickly sap the life out of your strings and your sound. EXP coated nickel wound bass strings have a natural round wound feel and sound fresh and bright with a "new string tone" that lasts three to four times longer than traditional bass strings.

Comments about D'Addario EXPR170 EXP Reds Regular Light Gauge Bass Strings:

I use these on a semi hollow bass to get a vintage tone, and for that, they are great. Has a nice acoustic boom, but never muddy. Not bright enough for slap or funk styles, but absolutely wonderful on rockabilly, country, roots blues, etc. Very supple for finger style players. Good, long lasting coated strings.
