Feel the Steel and Be Heard!

By Joe Everett

from Undisclosed

Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS170-6 Regular Light 6-String Bass Strings:

I play a good variety of sstyles in different settings. These strings cut through every time, and they cut through with great tone. Boost up what you really like on you EQ and these strings will comply. Slap, fingers, tapping, strumming are all welcome on these strings. Great price for an amazing product.
Keeps its tone for a looooong time. On my bass (Ibanez SR506) I turn the mids all the way down and use the mid cut switch. I put the bass and treble all the way. with these strings those highs get crispier and the lows get rumblier. These give greattone on both these ends. I also used them during a Blues Brothers show where I was told to use Duck Duns "quack" tone. this envolved mids as high as possible from my bass. These strings gave that mid punch that I needed.
Great super bright and long lasting tone. I play finger style, slap 'n' pop, finger strummming chords and two handed tapping. My guitarist likes to play my bass with a pick. The brightness helps every one of these styles cut through those pesky two guitar band practices. If you want to play angry these strings will get angrier. Funky, they're funkier. If you like REALLY bright strings these are what you are looking for.
Undoubtably the best I have ever encountered. This six string set is a little over half of some of those fansy 4 string sets. The tone is worth more than the price.

A match made in heaven!

By Starbuck Avon

Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS170-6 Regular Light 6-String Bass Strings:

Like I said, will never use anything else. These define my sound.
These strings and my Peavey Cirrus 6. Nothing else I've tried makes it sound so sweet, and that includes Rotosounds. They sound great regardless of what settings I use; they ring very well and boom really well. I can so much tonal range out of these strings it's not funny and I will never use anything else unless D'Addario stops making them (which I hope not!). I also agree with the other reviewer that they aren't as bad on your fingers.
These puppies last! What can I say.
Par for the course for good 6-string sets, although the current promotion is *really* sweet.

Chime for days... weeks... months, even

Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS170-6 Regular Light 6-String Bass Strings:

I'd been looking for my "dream" set of strings for years, and never quite coming across them until I had tried D'addario's ProSteel line. I was looking for a piano-like "chime" on the high-end (especially on the high-C of my six-string) without sacrificing the low-end of my basses (especially on the Low-B of my five and six-strings) and these were exactly what I'd been looking for. Not nearly as rough on your fingers as other stainless steel strings yet just enough to help toughen up your calluses, these are the perfect balance between super-slick coated strings and some of the earlier steel strings made that are bleed which are still on the market. If you're looking for strings that'll help you cut through the mix whether live or in the studio, help with finding the perfect slapping or tapping sound and yet still sounds like a *bass*, look no further. That they last longer than all the steel strings I've tried in my playing career is a extra bonus - it's always nice to put off changing strings. Just wipe them down, and you'll be set for months. Nothing else gets placed on my fretted basses than D'addario ProSteels. Period.*Please note: These are "D'addario"s "Long Scale" size made for 34" bass and may-or-may-not fit your 35"-scale bass depending on the length from the nut to the tuners, if you string through-the-body or other reasons that extend the string length past the scale length (nut-to-bridge saddle distance). If you have a 35" scale bass or are unsure, purchase the EPS170-5SL "Super Long" Extended Length set.
