Comments about D'Addario Flexsteels Long Scale Bass Guitar Strings (45-105):
I have been on the search for a very specific bass string having little to no luck. I knew the tone I wanted in my head but everything I tried came close but didn't quite hit the mark. MY SEARCH IS OVER! These are my new 'go-to' strings. They sound fantastic! I tried them after hearing a few reviews and I must say I am impressed that a company finally put out a new well made bass string. It seems like manufacturers favor guitars over bass and bassists get left with the same old stuff. These break that mold. Overall sound is very punchy and defined. I have them on an active Stingray bass and it cuts through like crazy. I can dial in a lot easier I think too. I play finger style and slap and had a hard time getting the defined tone like pick players. Not any more. The feel like most steel strings is a little 'sticky' feeling at first, but once they are broken in they feel oh so nice. Look no further. These are THE strings you've been waiting for.
