my first set of strings
August 18, 2012
These were my first set of strings that I had on my first Hofner 500/1 waaaaaaay back when. I'm going to assume that the short scale MIGHT fit, too. But, these were the strings I had.

I think it must be because of this particular set that I say D'Addario is my favorite cheap string. I thought the sound was pretty good, considering the price....especially the price. I had yet to get my first set of flats, which were to be Pyramid, of course.

But, do I recommend these strings to anyone that can not afford the strings that only Bill Gates can afford????? YUP, I do!!!

"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."
