    Comments about D'Addario EXL160 Gauge Nickel Wound Electric Bass Strings:

    I've been playing these strings for years now, and have never had a bad set. I used to be a devoted Ernie Ball customer, but got tired of their soft West Coast steel. These hardy Rust Belt strings have all of the harmonic quality of the Ernie Ball nickel wound sets, but are stiffer and much longer lasting. They're perfect for basses with one-piece necks, as the strings tend to stay in tune better and add just the right amount of tension. The heavier top gauge is more desirable as well, since it really eliminates the tinny sound of the D and G, which is especially common to the Fender Jazz. Top this all off with one of the best price points in the business, and you've got a real winner here. Bam!

    Die fast

    By brett

    Comments about D'Addario EXL160 Gauge Nickel Wound Electric Bass Strings:

    the strings are ok. but they sound like a tin can when you first get them, then when u break them in after a week or two they sound good. but soon after they sound good they die. they lasted me about 2 months, granted i play a lot, but they shouldnt die that fast.

    Amazing Strings!!

    By Rory Phillips

    from Chesapeake, Virgina

    Comments about D'Addario EXL160 Gauge Nickel Wound Electric Bass Strings:

    I got these string's cause I read that Jared Followill from the Kings of Leon use's these string's. I didn't know what to expect. Right when I opened the packaging I felt the string and they were smooth and they felt amazing, and when I was finally able to put them on my bass, they rung like a piano! They had the punch I had always wanted and the low end and I exactly wanted and most impotently that treble I've always wanted!! I highly recommend these string's or to at least give them a try!
