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.

The best strings

Lacs, 25.04.2017
After going through many different brands, i can safely say these will be my go too strings from now one. They play beautifully and are just the right amount of brightness, can play from mellow to slap without a problem.

Most 5 strings sets have issues with the B, but the tension and brightness of this was perfect for what i need, so it didn't need replacement.

They last at lot longer then most other strings to, for the price they are absolutely amazing.
