D Adarrio Bass String
March 23, 2011
Love these Strings. I have been using them for 20 + years and have only had 2 or 3 sets that didn't last as long as I expected.
I use the EXL 170-5TP.
Excellent price for these strings from Just Strings . com

These strings are great, through the years I have used anything from copper to colored strings, to anything out there, these strings are the best.

Good Strings, Great Price!

Again, these are solid strings at a great price. Lifespan is pretty good. If you're a player minding his budget, then I think these should be strongly considered.

Good enough

I have tried all the fancy brands and these are as good or better than most of them. Very balanced sound from low to high, good tension, long life. They are totally good enough for me!

I use these strings on a cheap 5-string bass, and they really make it come alive. Long lasting, great tone, and easy on the wallet.

"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."
