D'Addario NYXL Strings - Pitch Stability Test


collapse expand iconDescription


Constructed using NYXL nickel-plated string technology, these NYXL45105 Gauge NPS premium bass strings provide a powerful low end, clear mids and crisp highs for superb tonal balance. The NYXL treatment adds up to 200% more life to the strings while preventing premature fret wear.

Deep, Resonant Low End

The .45 to .105 gauge combination produces a thick, punchy bass tone that resonates powerfully through the instrument. The .105 gauge E string and .85 gauge A string generate deep, rich fundamentals, while the lighter D and G strings provide clarity and definition. Overall, the set has an evenly balanced tension for comfortable playability and consistent tone across all strings.

NYXL Technology Extends String Life

D'Addario's innovative NYXL plating process deposits an ultrafine layer of nickel onto the steel core wires, which helps strings retain their tone and playability up to three times longer than uncoated strings. The nickel plating also prevents premature fret wear, allowing musicians to experience consistent performance over the extended life of the strings.

Versatile Tone for Various Styles

The wide range of the NYXL45105 set suits various bass playing techniques and musical genres. The thick lower strings provide a solid foundation for aggressive slap and pop styles, while the lighter top strings cut through dense mixes. The set works equally well for rock, metal, jazz, R&B, hip-hop and more.

Premium Quality and Performance

As with all D'Addario products, the NYXL45105 bass strings are constructed using the highest quality materials and stringent manufacturing processes. The end result is a set of strings that intonate well, hold pitch consistently and deliver professional tone and feel. Experience the difference premium strings can make to your bass tone with the D'Addario NYXL45105 bass strings.
