EPS170S Prosteels Shortscale
By far and away the absolute best shortscale bass string out there. I have a half dozen shortscale basses and these strings are on every one.

D'Addario Electric Bass Prosteels
I have been using these string for better than 5 years and they are by far the best string for the money. The tone is bright and articulate. My basses come alive with these strings and the crispness last a long time!

Outstanding
Using these on a '58 Danelectro Longhorn Reissue that was the Korean prototype for what is now being made in China. Very nice range of sounds on this funky little bass. The steel roundwounds have a great magnetic attraction to these 'lipstick' pickups and the sound is full, clear with a nice ring and good low resonance. The bass came stock with the D'Addario Nickel roundwounds, but I wanted to try the steels for the added magnetic properties. I just love the way they sound.

"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."
