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

    For years I tried and used several different brands of strings and was never quite satisfied. When I began using D'Addario Strings I loved the way they felt under my fingers although the pro-steels are little rougher feeling than the nickels, I love the tone they produce on my 1989 Paul Reed Smith bass. I use the nickel version on my 1971 Jazz and my 1973 precision. These strings are always more consistent in quality and performance than any other brand that I have used.

        Great backup strings blend well with other sets and are a good general set of strings.

        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 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.
