Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass Chromes Flat Wound Super Long Scale, .045 - .100, ECB81SL
D'Addario Electric Bass Chromes Flat Wound Super Long Scale, .045 - .100, ECB81SLMostly fretless in TexasMay 5, 2010These are excellent strings! Classic Chrome flatwound sound. They start out a little bright but mellow up nicely. The extra length is necessary for through body stringing (at least on my classic stingray). Regular Chromes are a little too short. FYI, if you are using these on a standard 34 inch scale, remember the tensions shown are for a longer scale! (Use the tensions shown for the regular ECB81 set.) Regarding gauge, I'd buy a 45-105 set of Chromes if they made one, but until then these are it for the classic stingray!
