Comments about D'Addario EXPPBB170 Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Bass Strings:

These strings were the same as what came on my Ibanez AEB10E acoustic bass. I have always loved the sound and have never been dissatisfied with the quality or longevity of D'Addario strings. Yes, they are more expensive but I discovered a long time ago that with some things you truly get what you pay for. One feature of D'Addario strings is that the string is wound for the entire length. Other string manufacturers only wind just past the end of the frets requiring you to tension the entire string using only the core wire. I've owned this guitar since 2005 and this only the third set of strings that has been on it. Now I probably don't play as much as I need to but I have never been let down by any D'Addario strings.

Great Strings

By 

from Grant, La

Comments about D'Addario EXPPBB170 Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Bass Strings:

I have a Takamine G-Series Bass. The stock strings that came on the bass were terrible. They were very dull sounding. The minute I put the D'Addario strings on it, the sound was amazing! Very bright tone. Also has very good quality and are also very reliable. I've had these strings on the bass for about a month and no problems.

Great Sound, But Didn't Last

By 

from Texas

Comments about D'Addario EXPPBB170 Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Bass Strings:

When I first strung these on my bass, I noticed a huge difference. Bright and clear highs and deep lows. I was very impressed. The reason I am disappointed, though, is because I bought these specifically because of their especially long life. Within a month, my G string snapped in standard tuning. I don't even play that hard with my right hand. I was surprised that this happened. Don't get me wrong - these are great sounding strings, but for me, the quality is not worth the extra money. If you have the money and are willing to pay extra, go ahead.
