Top strings: Nice to install and play

The following was written by my husband who uses the bass guitar.

Brightest Nickels. Top notch quality.

I’ve spent an uncomfortable amount of money on bass strings in the attempt to find the perfect set for me. Of course, the assessment of what is best depends on which bass I’m putting these on, but the quality of these strings is truly top notch in any application. I have them now on my 1976 Rickenbacker 4001 (EXL 170 set) and I don’t think I’ll need to search any further. They provide the perfect balance of tension (in fact, D’Addario gives you all the tension specs… if that helps you) and contribute faithfully to the distinct Ric sound that one would expect from these basses.

I have tried much more expensive strings and always come back to these

My favorite strings at a great price. I play out regularly and we play long sets. I’m aggressive with my plucking fingers and after a two hour set, the nickel is easier on my fingers than stainless steel. I have never compared nickel and stainless side by side, but I can’t notice any loss of high end sparkle. When wiped down after each set, these strings last as long as any others I have ever used and I’ve tried most brands over the course of my career that has spanned well over 1500 gigs. These strings sound as great on my Fender Jazz as they do on my Spector.

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.

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.

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.

I Made The Right Decision

I did exhaustive reading, research and read forums on strings until I could not take it any more. Sure, I head about these particular strings, but some times it’s not the quality of an item that garners popularity; it’s their marketing prowess. Well, with the quality and sound of these strings they deserve to be at the “head table”. There was/is an immediate difference when I installed these strings. The feel and tone was outstanding. Once I completed the tuning, both at the pegs and 12th-fret harmonic, these strings were ready to go. They are holding their tuning very well — even the A-string surprised me with how well it remains in tune. These strings offer the warmth and definition I prefer. Lastly, there was also a discernable difference in the intonation. Recently, I had some other strings installed on another bass; they are coming off and these Nickel D’s are going on. (p.s. as a personal preference I would like red silk on both ends of the strings…just adds a nice asthetic, IMHO). Enjoy your bass…make music for the world to enjoy.

Great as always, D’Addario!

D’Addario XLs are the only strings I have ever used on my guitars. So when I built myself a fun little practice bass from parts, I knew that I would need to go for the XLs again. Of course, I couldn’t be happier! These have a super bright sound and great feel, just as I’ve come to get used to.

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.
