The perfect round-wound string
I can't find any strings with these gauges anywhere... They are punchy, roll off the fingers nicely, and last forever. (Though I definitely keep them on longer than most people... I like the strings as much dead as brand new, for different reasons.)

They do well with brightness for that string heavy sound, but with one turn of the tone nob they'll be sounding as warm as any flats.

Perfect for my Fender Jazz bass playing heavy funk, jazz, Afrobeat, and Latin styles.

Highly recommend!

Drop-C Tuning
This gauge of string works well with Drop-C tuning. Medium lifespan.

"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."
