    Comments about D'Addario NYXL45105 Gauge NPS Long-Scale Bass Strings:

    I have used many brands and models of strings over the years. I have to say that D'Addario nailed it on the
    head with these new model, NYXL strings! These are hands down, the overall best strings that I have ever played with on my basses, period! My Wal Mk I bass came alive and became even more of a tone monster with these strings than ever before. I will now be using these strings on all my basses, and I will try the NYXL guitar strings on my guitars as well. Give them a try. Thumbs up!

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL45105 Gauge NPS Long-Scale Bass Strings:

      My first impression of these strings were not that great when I first put these on especially considering the cost of these, but these strings just might become my favorite!

      I'm usually a strictly stainless steel string user and prefer very bright strings, the brighter the better like Pro Steels or Flex Steels. At first they seemed too similar to typical nickel plated round wounds but within a short time, their character changed to a tone I really like. These strings are bright and have a fantastic midrange presence to them. The E string is not boomy, but is well defined and stays defined even when tuning down.

      These strings have a smooth feel and tension that's not too tight, good for fingerstyle playing.
      I think it may be too soon to tell if these will the best I've tried but I plan on keeping them on for a while and hope they last for at least a few gigs.

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL45105 Gauge NPS Long-Scale Bass Strings:

      My new favorite strings. A lot of punch without being overly bright. Smooth feel and sustain.

      I had been using Dunlop Super Bright Nickels which are a great buy for the money but they were a bit too loose and flabby which caused a lot of fret noise when digging in. The Dunlop's also got dull pretty quickly.

      The NYXY's sound great with the right amount of tension. comfortable and no fret noise when digging in. They are no super bright sounding. If you want a really bright sound try stainless steel strings.

      The only issue is that there seems to be a few dead spots, but that maybe my bass more than the string itself. Because these strings have more punch, I might be noticing the fret based dead spots.

      They definitely seem louder than the Dunlop's. We'll see how long they retain their brightness, but so far so good.

      The other con is that they are very expensive twice the price of the Dunlop's I was using. Luckily you don't have to change bass strings that often.

      So far they have been worth the extra investment.

          I was lucky enought to test the guitar version of the NYXL and that prompted me to try the Bass strings. So far so good. I'm hoping the dont fade as quickly as the guitar strings did in the test.
