Sadly too short...

By Daniel Powell

from Boston, MA

I was excited to try these on my Traben Array 5, but despite being labelled as "Long Scale" the windings end two inches short of the nut. If you intent to use these on a 35" scale string-through body bass, find something else unless you aren't going to use fret# 1. I can't hold it against D'A, these are obviously great strings. They feel fantastic, just not long enough...

Pleasently surprised...

By Dale Scott

from McMInnville , Oregon

In all honesty when I ordered these wires for my new fretless bass, I Chose them simply because they were light gauge,and inexpensive. But when I played them for the first time I was VERY pleased with the feel, and tone of them. My bass has active/passive pups at the flip of a switch and a three band active EQ so I was able to get a wide range of sounds out of them with very little EQ tweaking at the amp, from warm and mellow to in your face punchy. I'm planning on putting a set of these on my Fiance's fretted bass as well for her to enjoy.I highly recommend these wires, especially if you play fretless bass.

D'Addario 5-String Bass Wires

By Bob Mutchler

from Folsom, CA

As a lifetime luthier, I must admit that I was originally a bit cautious about ordering the lower priced wires for my customer's 5-string bass. I was extremely surprised, therefore, to discover that the entire restringing procedure went smoothly with no final adjustments necessary other than a few tunings to stretch the wires. The action is responsive with a very mellow tone that can be beefed up with a bit of EQ work without sacrificing any of the response. I would compare these wires to a set that would cost at least 50% more. I hope that my local Guitar Center will start carrying these wires as a standard inventory item in the future.
