D'Addario Half-Round single B strings for bass
June 15, 2010
Last month I had the chance to browse the bargain bin at a national guitar chain and picked up a 4-string set of D'Addario bass strings for $20. Hard to pass up, but in order to use them on a 5-string I had to buy the low B here. To save on shipping (the string was a fair price compared to what the local/national guitar stores would've charged me IF they could get a string ordered, which is another issue) I bought the single B along with some acoustic 12-string sets I needed.
What I like about JustStrings is just that they have a flat shipping rate that allows you to mix and match strings on a single order; it makes a real difference to order 2-3 items at once and save on shipping.
As for the B-string; D'Addario has never let me down, not this time and not any time in the 30-plus years I've used them. The half-rounds make it easier to do note-sliding (especially on fretless basses) while keeping noise low (even on a fretted bass) and allowing you a more consistent volume and tone up the fretboard, which quite a few other strings fail to do.
D'Addario has been a family business long enough to know how to do things right, and I trust them when buying strings, even from the bargain bin of a music store.
