My first choice for 5-string basses

I've played electric bass guitars for about ten years now. Since that I have tried a wide range of different bass strings. After extensive playing I decided that D'Addario strings are the best choice for me. They are not overpriced, they last a long time and just give me the tone that I want. One could also mention the differently coloured ball ends that make restringing your bass a bit easier.

For my long scale 5-string bass guitars the D'Addario EXL170-5 strings seem to work best. I use them for B-standard tunings and occasionally for A#-standard. While I wouldn't use them for drop tunings they might as well work for other people just fine. You should try them yourself because the perfect string gauge also depends on your personal preferences.

I would like to add that I am very satisfied with the low B string. I have played a few low Bs by other string manufactures that didn't feel right and had different tone characteristics than the other four strings. With the EXL170-5 set you get a low B-string that isn't floppy at all and delivers a warm and full sounding tone.

I should mention the fact that these strings are nickel wound. So if you have any problems with nickel, you should consider other strings.

Nice Strings, but not the best you can get!

Well, I tried a couple of strings in the last months and this Set from D'Addario was one of them. I can compare them to Ernie Ball, GHS and Rotosound-Strings. The sound of the D'Addario-Strings is good. The B-String got a fat but pretty clear Sound and it has a great tension: not too soft and not too hard.

Compared to the other Strings I used I would vote them between the Rotosounds (worst Strings I've tried imo) and the GHS (Boomers). The reason why I gave the D'Addarios only 4/5 * for the Sound is that I preefer Stainless Steel Strings because of their aggressive tone. Compared to the Ernie Ball (Nickel)-Strings they don't have the Punch, which i love from EB-Strings. But for this price you can't make anything wrong with buying D'Addario Strings. ;)
