Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Bass Nickel Round Wound XL .055, XLB055
D'Addario Electric Bass Nickel Round Wound XL .055, XLB055Joshua ChandlerNovember 16, 2009I've had a lot of luck with these strings--they're much more consistent than others. I am grateful that singles are available here, because I construct my own "balanced" sets out of them for a reasonable price. 45-60-80-105 and 55-75-100-130T are my absolute favorites, and I wouldn't get them in another brand, because D'Addario's are so consistent and reliable that anything else seems needlessly risky. Not to mention they cop a wide range of tones, from fat warmth to a nice growl. Also quite good at Rickenclank a la Chris Squire of YES if you dig in.
