Great C flatwound!
December 22, 2020
The D'Addario Flatwound Chromes are my absolute favorite strings. I use them on all three of my basses (A Fender P-bass and two Modulus Q5s). You never have to get new ones unless you want some added brightness, but they sound and feel great, are light enough for super fast playing, and you can even slap with them! Bought this C string as I was tuning my Modulus EADGC for the first time, and I'm very happy with it. Great tone and clarity and tension!

D'Addario Chromes XL
November 8, 2011
Used on 6 string fretless 35.25" scale bass, strings through the body. Very smooth touch and tone. Decent punch when needed, and even decay, respond well to very light touch; harmonics are excellent. One gripe with extra-long scale bass strings in general is that string manufacturers make 5 string XL sets but no XL high "C" or in some cases low "B". It is just plain cruel!! Agree with above reviewers: it's a PIA to have to cut off an inch or more of silk windings just to get steel winding to nut contact. Come on people; give us a break!

Used for an acoustic 5-string

Great sound and feel for just about anything. My only complaint is that my acoustic pickup barely picks up any signal from it. It could just be my bass, but I only use it unplugged anyway, so it does the job.

I have not played other flat wound "high C" strings for electric bass, so I can't comment on them vs other brands...except to say that they exist and many other companies don't make flat wound "high C" bass strings. So +1 for that!
These match well with the D'Addario Chromes. They sound and play well and are thin enough not to require tapered ends. I think the blue cloth winding's length needs to be shortened. I had to trim mine with a knife.
