Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass Half Round Pure Nickel Soft Long 5-String, .045 - .130, ENR71-5

D'Addario Electric Bass Half Round Pure Nickel Soft Long 5-String, .045 - .130, ENR71-51NelsonDecember 26, 2011After playing some Fender steel flatwounds, I wanted to try something with a bit more brightness but still has that emphasis on the fundamental. I heard about half-rounds and thought I would give them a try. The G string is just what I'm looking for, has that "out of box" brightness, and an emphasis on the fundamental. The D and A strings however, have no "out of box" brightness and sound like they're ready to be changed even though ther're brand new. The E and B strings have no overtones whatsoever, and are just thuddy bass notes. Incredible differences between strings, I don't know where to put these on a 'brightness bar' because there are 3 different tones in the same box!

"In 1976 D'Addario developed the Half Roundâ grinding process, which made available the "third kind of string." Each Half Roundâ string starts as an oversized precision round wound string and is centerless ground to a smooth, precise final diameter. With a tone between their round wound and flat wound peers, D'Addario Half Roundsâ offer the advantages of a smooth exterior string (reducing finger noise and fret wear) while maintaining some of the brightness of a round wound string."
