My wife and I have met new friends at AZ Music Project who is coaching us for professional performing. Patrick & Bonnie run a top notch business for singers & musicians of all levels. After 40 years of playing the drums I recently purchased an new 5 string Ibanez bass and the original strings were nice sounding but very rough textured. Bonnie at AZ Music Project is also a bass player and I told her about my new purchase and she recommended the D'Addario Chromes Bass Strings stating they make a big difference. I ordered them online through Guitar Center and I must say these strings are awesome and sound great! Thanks Bonnie!
I've been playing bass for six years now and for a long time i hated flat wound strings. Then i got a set of chromes. Holycrap dude they are the best sounding strings ive ever heard. They have such a nice tone and depth to them. Even in hard core I play in A# and you would think it would sound dull or muddy but, its just the oposite. Ill probly never buy a another set of strings that are not D'addrio Chromes! The best strings ever!
Great Strings !!! AS a Blues Bassist, I like A deep strong bottom from my Bass Strings. These strings really deliver. The highs are there too, but they don't have that Piano twang that D'Addario round wounds usually do. I was never a fan of D'Addario strings because of their Piano like sound, but these Flat Wounds changed my mind entirely. I happened to try them by chance because the Rosewood, Warmouth neck I put on my 5 string J-Bass was an extra long scale and my choice of flat wound strings was limited as a result. I'm glad I gave them a try.
