The String For All Styles of Play!
It was time to change strings on my new Schecter Riot 5 , so I decided to try a fresh pair of Prosteels, because these are also what Schecter strings them with at the factory, and wow the tension is perfect. The tone cuts through any mix and you can't beat this price. May The Funk Rock Your Soul Forever!

Tone & Price
I use Pro Steels on half my basses. Depends on the gig. I was a big Rotosound guy for years. When I switched over to 6-string bass in '95 it was virtually impossible to get a 6-string steel string set. So I went over and tried a few other brands and gave up on steels. Ken Smith, Ernie Ball, etc. Around '98 I got into D'Addario and have been playing them ever since. When they came out with Pro Steels a few years back, my heart nearly dropped. I could get my good rockin' grindyness out again. I have stuck with D'Addario because they are very even in tension from string to string and still are at a competitive price point. These also feel a bit smoother than some of the other steel sets I've played as well. I also play in various tunings and use different size sets. These stand up on all fronts.

"ProSteels are D'Addario's brightest and most magnetic bass strings. A specialized alloy delivers harmonically rich, brilliant high-end coupled with deep, tight lows that work in tandem to create the "piano-like" tone stainless steel players crave."
