D'Addario 6string set to go with my .20 1st string high F
November 8, 2019
Good set, shows little wear after 2 months (10 hours use). There is good balance especially between the A & D strings, where it can be a problem with volume. The B & E stings are adequate in volume, fit correctly in the Ibanez BTB747. Finally, the G & C strings work nicely with the added high F. I work primarily in the G through F strings and I find that they are really well suited to the task. I am a nearly 70 year old player who can't gig because of my rheumatoid arthritis.
ProsBalance , Balance, Balance. Long wear.
ConsNone

"Popularly priced XL nickel round wound bass strings are wound with the same nickel-plated steel alloy as XL round wound guitar strings. Today's XL string specifications are the culmination of years of experimentation by Jim D'Addario and John D'Addario, Sr. Even now, D'Addario's sound room is crowded with different electric bass guitars for experimentation with different string specifications and for quality tests on string production. 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."
