Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass Twin Pack XL Environmental Soft Top/Regular Bottom, .045 - .105, EXL165TP

D'Addario Electric Bass Twin Pack XL Environmental Soft Top/Regular Bottom, .045 - .105, EXL165TP5SteveOctober 17, 2010I like the sound that these strings produced, not too muddy or nor tinny. They provide the perfect balance and perfect tone (what everyone strives to achieve). By the way, the "TP" in the suffix means "Twin Pack", so instead of getting one EXL165 string set, you get two. I contacted Gibson to see which strings they recommended for the Gibson Les Paul Bass and they said they use D'Addario strings exclusively (.045 - .105). They sound excellent and feel right under my fingers. I will continue to purchase this string set for my main bass. After all if Gibson uses them, then you know they're good strings.

"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."
