    The Best Strings...

    0 5/5 Uncle Meat (Southeastern PA, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: D'Addario EXL170TP Nickel Wound Bass Guitar Strings, Light, 45-100, 2 Sets, Long Scale (Electronics) Simply put, these are the best strings at the lowest price. I've been playing electric bass for over 35 years and these are the brand I always come back to. I've tried Dr. Bass, Rotosounds, Fender, Markleys, etc. with no noticeable difference or improvement. D'Addarios sound great and last a long time. You can usually find them in multi-packs and/or on sale so it doesn't hurt to change them more often. This is one example where use don't get what you pay for, your get more! They come in many different lengths and gauges, so make sure you buy the correct set for your instrument. If you select a different gauge, don't forget that you may have to make adjustments to the intonation, string height, and/or neck relief on your bass or guitar. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 7, 2011

    Great Sound and Longevity.

    0 5/5 TheBigC - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: D'Addario EXL165TP Nickel Wound Bass Guitar Strings, Custom Light, 45-105, 2 Sets, Long Scale (Electronics) I've been using D'Addario strings for ages. Both on my basses, and my guitars.These bass strings are comfortable enough to play, even on the longer 3 hour+ gigs. They sound nice and bright. But the main thing is they last a long time. They retain their tuning and sound for ages which is good news for the struggling muso. Plus, who wants to keep changing their strings all the time? Not me! I don't have a guitar tech like the stars do. Or the money!I have tried many different brands over the years but always come back toDÁddario for their great performance and longevity.Highly Recommended 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 17, 2012
