Love These Strings!
I have played these stings for many years and have never been able to find a better sounding, better feeling, better lasting string for the money. They are VERY consistent from set to set and have truly wonderful tonal qualities. All five of my basses (J-Basses, P-Bass, Stingray) have EXL170's on them. Every time I've tried a new string, I have been disappointed and put EXL's right back on. If it ain't broke - don't fix it!

D'addario EXL 170's
Without a doubt, the best strings for the money. Nickel strings are the perfect roundwound string. Something about the feel. No need to pay more. Thought of not writing this just to keep it to myself.

Great strings!
I put these on a couple of different Jazz basses I have and they sound great! Although it says they are bright on the package, they don't seem too bright to me. Good value!

Great Price
Wow, two sets of strings for a great price. That makes it hard to beat. Overall, I think the tone of the strings is fine, and the feel is good too. They seem to intonate as well as any other strings I've used which include DR and Skjold most recently. I've been using these for two weeks on one bass so far, and the tone is still nice and lively.

"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."
