Comments about SIT Strings NR45105L Medium Light Power Wound Nickel Bass Strings:
After many years of using D'Addario EXL 165's I've made a permeant switch!
I don't know why I waited so long to give these a try, I tried just about every other string but kept returning to D'Addario but these have won out! Both strings are very good. Both last and are consistent, but there is a character to the sound of the S.I.T.'s I just love. They allow a more aggressive attack than the 165's and also respond nicely to a soft attack, so overall a more versatile string. Plenty of beef for rock but also a nice snap for slap. It's a more "old school" slap tone than say DR's but still bright on the top end without being harsh. Truthfully I know why I waited, for some reason I had a perception of S.I.T.'s being "budget" strings, nothing could be further from the truth! American made and every bit the quality of the other major manufacturers. I just wish M.F. had the XL version and the 5 string sets to fit all my basses.
