My Favourite Strings

James K., 24.04.2018
Since I started playing bass I used the Daddario EXL170, when I started playing 5 String basses the natural choice was to use the EXL170-5.
I have tried many other brands and gauge of string but my brand of choice will always be Daddario and the string I use for standard tuning will always be this EXL170-5, (I use these to play everything from Death Metal to Funk and anything in between).
The strings sound bright and have a definite depth and clarity that sounds more brilliant and lasts longer than other brands I have tried, even outlasting some coated strings I have tried.
In terms of quality, sound and value for money these strings are the best.

My first choice for 5-string basses

02.08.2014
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.
