Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass XL Environmental Regular Long 5 String, .050 - .135, EXL160-5

D'Addario Electric Bass XL Environmental Regular Long 5 String, .050 - .135, EXL160-55MarkJune 29, 2011I love any string I've tried with the D'Addario name on it. I put a set of these on my Warwick 5 string after trying an expensive set from Fodera for ten minutes. I was very happy with their performance. Nice smooth touch for pizzicato (finger picking) and great response and output for slap. D'Addario is my go to brand for comparison's sake. Occasionally I find something better but I am never dissatisfied with D'Addario.

"Popularly priced XL nickel round wound bass strings are wound with the same nickel-plated steel alloy as XL round wound guitar strings. Today's XL string specifications are the culmination of years of experimentation by Jim D'Addario and John D'Addario, Sr. Even now, D'Addario's sound room is crowded with different electric bass guitars for experimentation with different string specifications and for quality tests on string production. The XL series of D'Addario's broadest and largest-selling line of electric bass guitar strings, with 18 different string models offered. Many models are available in both environmental and standard packaging."
