  • Chime for days... weeks... months, even

    As reviewed by Ian Perge on 1/3/2007

    I'd been looking for my "dream" set of strings for years, and never quite coming across them until I had tried D'addario's ProSteel line. I was looking for a piano-like "chime" without sacrificing the low-end of my basses, and these were exactly what I'd been looking for. Not nearly as rough on your fingers as other stainless steel strings yet just enough to help toughen up your calluses, these are the perfect balance between super-slick coated strings and some of the earlier steel strings made that are still on the market. If you're looking for strings that'll help you cut through the mix whether live or in the studio, help with finding the perfect slapping or tapping sound and yet still sounds like a *bass*, look no further. That they last longer than all the steel strings I've tried in my playing career is a extra bonus - it's always nice to put off changing strings. Just wipe them down, and you'll be set for months. Nothing else gets placed on my fretted basses than D'addario ProSteels.

  • PRO-Steals

    As reviewed by Steve on 11/5/2010

    These strings have been what Ive been looking for to complete my sound. In metal bands the bassist has to compete with a cacophony of sound. Everything from chugging guitars, mean growls, bashing cymbals, and running double bass is trying to bury you in the mix. These strings are bright enough to project your sound out and into the crowd with the rest of it and still beefy enough to keep that punch and big deep sound. Strings last a good long while if you keep a good wipedown regement.

  • Zingy!!

    As reviewed by Kevin Glenn on 9/20/2006

    Great strings. Definitely not as rough feeling as Warwick Black Label Strings. Brightness holds a good long time and these strings are generally cheaper than the competition. The sound is full of growl, punch, and low end. I would suggest contacting D'Addario and asking them about what size string you will need for your bass. I had a few issues with fitting strings on my 35" neck Spector Euro LX 5 string. Awesome roundwound strings.
