Super Nice Strings

Just that...
I find in them anything I need, tone and definition-wise, and I just couldn't be happier with their quality!!!
I like to play around with different tunings, and thet offer a wide range of gauges. Also, the fact that a huge range of singles of any gauge are available to customize sets, is brilliant!!!
From time to time I try other brands, and many are OK, but is just I have found my feel and tone with D'Addario, and I'm always going back to using them.
It's a matter of taste, as always when sound is involved.
For me they're PERFECT, I love them!!!

Excellent quality and good for lower tunings
Vorath 11.07.2021
These seem made to fit lower tunings, i currently have them in Drop C, but honestly i think they would be better in standard C: the higher strings still have quite a bit of tension!
Not to mention: having them in a "drop" style tuning kind of defeats the purpose of the "balanced tension", but the low C string still has good tension and sounds full.

Pros:
- good sound, as always from d'addario
- long lasting (at least when compared to other non coated strings)
- perfect for low tunings or if you just want higher tension and a balanced feel

Neutral:
- the "balanced" feel may take some getting used to
- overall tension of the strings is higher than i anticipated

Cons:
- you "may" need to check if your nut can fit the thicker gauge. I got lucky and did not need any adjustment.

Couldn't live without it for my drop C bass

These are the only set out there that imo are just right for a 4 string bass tuned to drop C.
Have been looking everywhere, from 5 string sets (and don't use one string) to separate strings (which aren't sold often and get expensive fast).
I hope Daddario never stops making these because I wouldn't know what to do :(

I use these for D standard and drop C tunings on a standard 34" scale bass. Great tension, not too floppy (even when D is dropped to C), not too tight.
+) Very reliable, never broke one, don't think i ever will.
Even when the sound gets duller (as with all strings), still keeps a punchy and clear sound. Fresh out of the pack they have a "snappier" top end, but i don't mind the duller sound.
