D'Addario XL Nickel Wound Bass
The D'Addario EXL 165 45-105 bass strings are a regular set of bass guitar strings.  I have them stringed up on my Gretsch Junior Jet bass and they do the job quite well.  This was the first time that I bought these types of strings as I don't change my bass strings all that often because I don't play bass all that often.  I'm primarily a singer and a guitar player and I have a bass guitar to mess around with, so while I don't necessarily know about all the different types of bass strings that are available out there, I do know that the D'Addario EXL 165 45-105 bass strings do the job well and have a good sound to them.  They have felt good on the fingers thus far and are overall pretty smooth feeling.  I can't say what the lifetime of these strings are as I haven't had them stringed up for all that long, but this really depends more on how often you play with them anyway.  D'Addario is known as one of the best and oldest string manufacturers out there and I wholeheartedly trust them when it comes to making strings. I prefer using Martin strings for acoustic guitars, but I love D'Addario strings for electric guitar and I have definitely now been swayed to use them for bass guitar as well.  I like this particular gauge of strings since I don't have the biggest fingers, but if you like heavier gauges I would suggest looking into this same set of strings just in a different gauge as I believe they are the same in make up and the other difference is the size of the strings.  These aren't an expensive set of strings, so if you are looking for a good set of bass guitar strings, the D-Addario EXL 165 45-105 bass strings are absolutely worth a buy.

D'Addario XL Nickel Wound Bass
Hi all, its been a while since I use Ad,
gnralement in, I keep 4 / 6 months
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Most:</span>
- Long-lasting, clear sound, especially crystalline as they are new, I like it, but one week APRS, ds they have a little patina, sound s'quilibre.
- Rsistantes
- Reasonable price (about 23 game).
- Trs good sound reproduction
- Mdiator, Slap, Tapping, Finger = Super, they are versatile trs.
- Rich in harmonic
- Long life
- Package recyclable
- Free Gift grae points on the package
<span style="text-decoration: underline;">The least</span> sincrement, I see it, the sound is perhaps too light, too crystalline to beginners, but his pass after a few hours of play APRS, must try them. I left it, I am, I know them well and are friends with my wallet. I play any style, and the slap, finger, mediator, tapping ... I can not complain, they transcribed what I do.

Trs qualitprix good value.

With exprience, I redeem, or it, or else the Fender Nickelplated steel rundwound are not bad (classic, but not expensive, proper quality) and then flat files in Ad well sure.

There are a lot of choice in Ad, whether the flat or round cords son chromium, nickel and so on, your choice.
J'hsite I put 9 because nothing is perfect, we all have DIFFERENT tastes, but the Ad ropes are excellent quality for the price pay.

Use six months on a US Spector.

The sound of these strings is trs trs crystalline beginners and lightweight faded after a week to give up a balanced sound with good bass and nice treble. The nickel plating makes them soft to the touch and overall the strings get older if they are cleaned from time to time.

D'Addario XL Nickel Wound Bass
I use this set of strings for over a year (yes!). I must say that life is excellent, I have the same game since 1 year and they are still operational. good they have lost a bit of sustain, but I quibble.
harmonics are very beautiful. the strings are very bright. really great strings for 30 euros.

I do not redeem them because the pull is too small for me (I give myself in Dropped D) and thus gives effect sela chewing gum (well it's not dead either!). I'll take the same but 45-105.
I like: the length of life above average, brightness, overall quality of the strings.
I like least: the price (but hey, it's worth) and pulling a little too low for the Dropped D (XL preferred the 165 to the same series).
