Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass XL Environmental Soft Top/Regular Super Long, .045 - .105, EXL165SL

D'Addario Electric Bass XL Environmental Soft Top/Regular Super Long, .045 - .105, EXL165SL5Aaron T.October 11, 2009I have been using the same set for a very long time now (2-3 years). I boiled them once to bring back some of the luster and they just keep on giving. I'm playing a five string so I added a XB130SL to the set. I only wish D'Addario would combine them into one SL set (assuming this would bring the cost down). It will be interesting to hear how a brand-new set will sound. I may just boil the old ones again to reuse them.

"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."
