    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

    By poopypants1234

    from Nashville

    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 Colin-XUHyQ

    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 Bear_San

    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.
