Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass Chromes Flat Wound Soft Long, .045 - .100, ECB81

D'Addario Electric Bass Chromes Flat Wound Soft Long, .045 - .100, ECB815Ted GilleyJanuary 3, 2012These Chromes are a good bargain at this price. The feel is nice and smooth, the tension is a bit higher than GHS flats (and perhaps others, but GHS is what I've used previously), and the sound is deep and mellow. Having recently installed DiMarzio Jazz pickups on my jazz, I wanted to intensify the deep sound they were bringing out of the bass--and I got it with these strings.

"D'Addario Chromesâ are crafted with precision flat (ribbon) outer windings and polished to a fine high luster, but this bass string's tone is not typical of most flat wound strings. By creating under-windings and core combinations that vibrate freely, D'Addario has been able to develop a flat wound bass string that has a true, clear sound while offering the advantages of a smooth exterior winding."
