Customer Reviews

Solid tone and performance at a great price

These strings are dependable, consistent, and durable. What more can you ask out of a bass string? I use them on three basses with entirely different characteristics….a Hofner violin bass (semi-hollow), a Gretsch 6073 (hollow Monkees bass), and a Vox Phantom IV (solid body). They deliver excellent tone and sustain on each platform. The durability is a cost saving plus. My preference is a bright lively sound. These strings don’t go dead from use, they eventually go dead from dead skin and oil from your fingers filling in the grooves. Take them off and boil them for three minutes, put them back on, and they’re new again! The fact that they are well made and durable allows you to perform this trick 4 or 5 times.

Boom! This gauge rocks my bass. I modified my troy Sanders squire jaguar bass. Stripped out the weak active electronics and installed dimarzio p j pickups. Sounds better passive even with the stock light strings. Put these strings on, had to adjust bridge and truss rod, but holy smokes did this bass really come to life after switching to these strings.

I always have to remember to wind most of the "A" string on my Fender Mexi-P Bass due to the tapering tuning pegs to avoid buzz.

D’Addario XL’s have been my favorite strings for years for both guitar and bass. I’ve been playing a lot more bass lately, and had cheaped out on my last set of strings with some Slinkys (which are decent). I was very happy to put a set of D’Addario XL’s back on my bass – they are bright and full and play fantastically.

The, D’Addario

Hey sports fans. I’ve been using D’Addario strings on most of my guitars, both Bass and Electric guitars. I love the sound I get from the Nickel Wound strings. I’ll be putting these on either my OLP (Stingray) or my Cort A4. Very much recommended indeed. Have a great day.

Bad set of strings

I’ve used this product before and never had an issue so I’m blaming the storage part/age of these strings. As I was winding them up, 2 busted. I believe the strings were defective due to age. The inside of the strings were corroded. I did get my money back but hated the inconvenience. I ended up having to go buy them elsewhere. Same strings. And these set’s worked perfect.

Great Strings. Come to life pretty quickly. Didn’t have to tune my bass 100 times in the first day like you do with cheaper strings. Great Bass tones. Bright but not too bright. Harmonics sounds good. I have only tried 3 brands of strings. Ernie Ball, D’Addario and Rotosound. Rotosound are great strings as well but These are a better value and keep a nice tone for quite a while. These are definitely my first choice in Bass Strings

I’ve been enjoying these for 15+ years

I was introduced to these stings about 1993 by a friend who restrung my guitar for me. I was using Boomer or something at the time, and even as a beginner I could tell a big difference in the feel. I’m not a big tone snob, so I’ve not noticed much on the tone being good or bad, esp since I use a lot of distortion ala Big Muff.

Great bass guitar strings!

I’ve used D’Addario strings for years on all of my guitars – acoustic and electric. I’ve recently started using a bass for recording and the occasional gig, so when it came time to change strings, I went with what I know. So glad I did! These strings feel great, stay in tune extremely well, and retain their tone longer than the Dean Markley strings that were previously on my Precision bass.

I like these strings

I personally like the sound and durability of these strings. The tone fades as most strings do but at least they haven’t snapped on me while playing a show.

D’Addario makes some damn consistent strings. I don’t have a ton of brand loyalty. Price is almost always the biggest factor here, but I have no reason not to stick with these.
