I put these on my StingRay and it sounds amazing. HUGE bottom and great sounding high end. A monster combination!

In my experience, these roundwounds are the best buy for the money. The sound is bright (which tones down a bit in weeks) but not brassy; and they are long-lasting. They go well with my jazz bass. Great value.

The best string for me for 25+ years.

Excellent strings, great value!
These strings really sound great, have a wonderful feel if you tend to do a lot of bends or chords. I discovered these strings when needing an 8 string set and immediately noticed the brightness and projection these strings have. I tried them in place of Boomers and Rotosounds and I've been really satisfied. These strings might not last as long as others but they hold up with a distinct tone. Best value for the price of any string I've used. Give them a try, you might like them.

Bass strings
I have been using d'Addario bass strings

and the consistent quality is apparent.

They seem to hold their intonation over their life span very well.

I would like to see this manufacturer make nylon bass strings, I use those for recording for a little less fret noise.

But for jams & gigs , D'Addario strings are superb.

Has never let me down!
These are great strings! I've been using them for years from a fender jazz to a custom six string and everything in between. They're very balanced in the tone spectrum... Solid lows, nice mids, and sparkling highs. Slapariffic for sure!

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."
