I use these strings on all my basses. They are easy on the frets, smooth under the fingers, tone to the bone for blues, jazz, rock and all manner of noodling. The 60's were good to me and the flatwounds were good to my many basses!! The set on my #1 Robin Ranger have been on the bass for over a year with no loss of tone or failure to tune. Just wipe them down after every gig and keep on trucking!
Believe it or not--matters not! Buy em, use em, you will be pleased.

D'Addario Chromes Flat Wound Medium Scale
March 12, 2015
These would not fit my Chinese Hofner Bass. I purchased these because reviews and other comments on the Just Strings site recommended them for a Chinese Hofner Bass. They don't fit. The gauge (45-100) will neither fit the slots on the end piece nor fit the holes on the tuning pegs. The silk wrap prevents stringing. Even when the silk wrap is removed ( a lot of work) they didn't fit well. I didn't realize this until I had opened the package and started the restringing process. Once opened they can't be returned. My $30.00 mistake. Just so you know.

The Hofner Bass Perfect string Set

If you're looking for the string set that fits with the Hofner scale, this is it, no short, no long and if you want the McCartney sound flat wound - D'Addario the best.

Thanks to Jim Clark

Great Strings!

I'm very pleased with how these strings make my Fender BG-31 sound. The stock Fender Phosphor Bronze make it almost "jangly". These D'Addario Flats are nice and mellow without being dead. I may never switch!

I've been using Chromes for years and they are consistently excellent. The fact that I can get them in Medium scale is a real plus - it allows me to use them on my 32" scale Alembics and not worry about forcing the string into the tuners where it may be damaged. D'Addario makes great products - I use several brands but I always have plenty of D'addarios in stock.

These strings are the only bass strings I use on my 1970
Epiphone Bass. They are quite simply the best for tone and performance.

"D'Addario Chromesâ are crafted with precision flat (ribbon) outer windings and polished to a fine high luster, but this bass string's tone is not typical of most flat wound strings. By creating under-windings and core combinations that vibrate freely, D'Addario has been able to develop a flat wound bass string that has a true, clear sound while offering the advantages of a smooth exterior winding."
