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, ECB81SL5Mostly 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!

"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."
