Perfect balance between Flat and Roundwound!

By TrackmasterV

Comments about D'Addario ENR71-6 Half Rounds Light 6-String Bass Strings:

I just picked up these strings and they are absolutely amazing! It is exactly what I've been looking for. I used to play DR Roundwounds all the time but was looking for something a bit beefier. Slapping is great on roundwounds but I would always lose low end, thus forcing me to switch to some Carvin Flatwounds, which are an amazing cheap set of flats. Fingerstyle and everything else was nice and thick, but left me desiring that bite for slapping. So, I got the halfwounds and they are perfect! Thick round tone when playing fingerstyle, but can sizzle when you need it to.

    Comments about D'Addario ENR71-6 Half Rounds Light 6-String Bass Strings:

    Some wrote they lose their tone after awhile but instead of a used round would turns into a flat wounds.
    They were like round wounds at first but these strings do not waver when pressure is consistent with the exact location of the note without a pitch deviation.

      Comments about D'Addario ENR71-6 Half Rounds Light 6-String Bass Strings:

      Without having to pay $124.99 for flat wounds these are the best strings in the price range.
      These are strange string they feel like flat-wounds but are no sharp edges at all.

      Not a middle ground string

      Comments about D'Addario ENR71-6 Half Rounds Light 6-String Bass Strings:

      I've had these strings for awhile and straight out of the package they were dull and lifeless all strings were dirty and had very little sustain. The E and B strings sounded really like flat wounds I tried everything to brighten the sound with the eq even maxing the treble and mid to no avail I really recommend a different type of string that D'Addario produces
