  • D'Addario EXL160M XL - An Honest Review

    As reviewed by Clint Greene on 4/25/2011

    These are the strings which I originally used when I first took up bass two years ago. Although a "newbie" then, looking back with more experience, I can honestly say that I found these strings live up to excellent standards of quality, from the silk windings to the even tone throughout the length of the string. Although fairly bright in tone (which is what they are made for), I could also mellow them a bit by adjusting my bass' tone controls and pickup configuration (Fender Aerodyne Jass P/J). So I could go bright and "up front" or mellower and richer for a more root-oriented/background style of play. I especially liked the heavier gauges, as I felt this produced a "richer" more complex sound to each string than the next size smaller. Playing them every other week at church (finger style), I would typically get 5-6 months out of them, minimum, often longer. I also took care of them, occaisionally wiping them down with alcolhol to clean off any finger oils that tends to deaden them, too. Eventually I moved to the D'Addario Flat Wound Chromes, but that was strictly for reasons of musical style, not because there was anything wrong with these. Definitely a great quality string at a great price. 5 out of 5 stars.
