    Comments about D'Addario EPS170-6SL Pro Steels Regular Light Super Long Scale 6-String Bass Strings:

    i wanted to make this review, so that if you are looking for strings for a 35" string through the body, these are just long enough, i had to dig to find these, i emailed musician's friend, and the reply was that all long scale will work, that is true if you string through the top at the saddle, but you will be just short, if you want to use string through,

      Comments about D'Addario EPS170-6SL Pro Steels Regular Light Super Long Scale 6-String Bass Strings:

      Use these strings on a 5 string James Tyler with Bartolini pickups. These strings are really bright. I found them to be almost to bright. I prefer a bit rounder sound with good highs. I still would recommend these.
