      Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS165 Light Top/Medium Bottom Long Scale Bass Strings:

      I play in a cover band, and I've used lots of other strings, and I have found that the 'gut-wrenching' sound of these strings really make them cut thru when playing live! My bass is a modified MIM Fender Jazz bass, with Ampeg and SWR equipment. They have a lot of 'thump' to them that I haven't been able to find in other strings. Prosteels are now my 'go-to' strings!

      good strings

      Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS165 Light Top/Medium Bottom Long Scale Bass Strings:

      I have owned these strings for about a week now and I have to say these strings are brilliant!! These will take a little while to get used to but after you get used to them they are great. I mean, pickups are magnetic right? Why not get metal strings then! Get these you will not regret it!

      These are good strings

      By 

      from Connecticut

      Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS165 Light Top/Medium Bottom Long Scale Bass Strings:

      I used these for a while, before I realized that I should experiment with different strings to see what kind of tones I could get. The Ernie Ball Hybrid Steels are a bit more of Mid range than these, I had to EQ my bass equipment less.These strings, however, last for a long time. They feel very much like a steel string, and are a bit tough, but you get used to them. For now, i'm sticking to my Ernie Balls since they are cheaper and I like them better.

      Excellent Strings

      By 

      from Santa Barbara, CA

      Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS165 Light Top/Medium Bottom Long Scale Bass Strings:

      I bought these to replace the stock stings on my Ibanez GSR200, and I was literally amazed... it was like I bought a new bass. These strings are great, and I am honestly afraid to try any other strings because I love the sound of these ProSteels so much.
