Strings have good tone overall but varies somewhat from string to string.
Good price and fit. Bright sound. Volume and tone vary from string to string.

I put a set of these on Dano Longhorn that I've had for a while and the thing just came to life. They sound great and have much better tension than the flats I had on it.

Great strings, great sound. Good feel on the fingers. Had all sorts of trouble finding short scale strings in the gauge I wanted; Juststrings had them! Recommend the strings and the site.

These string are the best. I have used them for 3 years changing them every 6-8 weeks. I have used EXLS for over 20 years. They are great sounding and dependable as hell under heavy usage. Look nowhere else but Juststrings.com.

The XL series of D'Addario's broadest and largest-selling line of electric bass guitar strings, with 18 different string models offered. Many models are available in both environmental and standard packaging."
