Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass XL Environmental 5 Super Long, .045 - .130, EXL170-5SL

D'Addario Electric Bass XL Environmental 5 Super Long, .045 - .130, EXL170-5SL5MikeAugust 22, 2011Great for the rock'ish and metal'ish genres of music; balanced strings with a pronounced growl and a pinch of warm lows and somewhat articulate high end. The string gauges are right, quality is decent, they're still bright after 2-3 weeks of use. If it was possible I would give 4.75 out of 5 rating. THANKS D'ADDARIO AND JUST 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."
