Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass XL Nickel Wound, .040 - .100, EXL190

D'Addario Electric Bass XL Nickel Wound, .040 - .100, EXL1905JonMarch 25, 2010Pros: Great bass string if you're looking for a string that bends well and has a higher slap tone. Easy to tap on. Quick on the action. D'Addario has always been a "set-it and forget-it" string for me. Once you put them on and tune them, they're set. It's as if they were already broken in. Cons: Sometimes I feel like I'm going to break the higher strings when I get too carried away playing. If the action seems too movable for you try the EXL170 which range from .045 to .100.

"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."
