Waiting for its turn
busy_b 08.02.2020
I've bought this set as an alternative for EXL 158 baritone Light Gauge and I want to tune it down to A tuning or open A (now I play baritone tuned in B). I'm really curious how it will sound, yet I have to record some songs with D'Addario EXL158 baritone light gauge set first, which is pleasure to play. So I hope for the best, as with other D'Addario strings.

A
Excellent quality as usual from D'Adddario but there is quite a jump between gauges
Anonymous 02.03.2014
These are every bit as reliable, economical and with as great a tone as all other nickel plated D'Addario strings. They are very long and so fit my 28 5/8" scale baritone with enough spare to go round all the string posts comfortably. In standard 'B' baritone tuning I find the jump between the 3 thinnest strings to the 3 thickest is quite considerable (from a 26w to a 44w) and this makes them (at least for me) seem a bit unbalanced tension-wise. When tuned down to 'A' tuning, the bass strings feel better, but then the treble strings feel too soft! Obviously you will need to make sure that the lowest string can enter its tuning post -otherwise you will need to modify it (drilling it out a little). I liked these strings but think I will return to D'Addario's lighter baritone gauge because on my guitar they felt more balanced.

Great value strings for low tunings
KaltNoir 06.06.2020
As an owner of 2 baritone guitars I have used these strings for low tunings and I can say that given the price which is a little lower than the Ernie Ball Slinky Baritone, when compared they feel more premium.
The sound is a little less warm but the tonality is more defined.
All in all they are great strings but the problem that I encountered is that the thicker string of the set is a .065 gauge in comparison with the Ernie Ball Baritone strings which offer a .072 gauge that worked better for tunings below A as I achieved better tension and stability.
In conclusion they do the job really well as long as you don't get too low.

Good choice for baritone
JonHark 17.05.2017
Not disappointed with the clarity gain with this new set of string for my Hagstrom Viking baritone. Good low end and sparking high end. Brilliance certainly go away with time (as always) but they still sound pretty good if you don't want to change it all the time.
