Amazing strings

By Kade Varner

from Manchester, NH

Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS170-5 Regular Light 5-String Bass Strings:

I had these on one of my old basses, and I currently have them on my 6 string ibanez sr506 and these strings sound amazing, have a really good feel to them and last a long time. They give a nice bright sound to them, I find them to sound wicked good for the music I play (metal, metalcore, ect.) I've never heard anything bad about them from anyone either, obviously there will be people that don't like them. If you're looking for strings with long life and are good quality and great durability, these are the ones!

PRO-Steals

By Steve

from Albuquerque NM

Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS170-5 Regular Light 5-String Bass Strings:

These strings have been what Ive been looking for to complete my sound. In metal bands the bassist has to compete with a cacophony of sound. Everything from chugging guitars, mean growls, bashing cymbals, and running double bass is trying to bury you in the mix. These strings are bright enough to project your sound out and into the crowd with the rest of it and still beefy enough to keep that punch and big deep sound. Strings last a good long while if you keep a good wipedown regement.

Zingy!!

By Kevin Glenn

from Palatine, IL

Comments about D'Addario ProSteels EPS170-5 Regular Light 5-String Bass Strings:

Great strings. Definitely not as rough feeling as Warwick Black Label Strings. Brightness holds a good long time and these strings are generally cheaper than the competition. The sound is full of growl, punch, and low end. I would suggest contacting D'Addario and asking them about what size string you will need for your bass. I had a few issues with fitting strings on my 35" neck Spector Euro LX 5 string. Awesome roundwound strings.
