Comments about D'Addario NYXL50105 Gauge NPS Long-Scale Bass Strings:

Absolutely the best bass strings I have ever played! In the 50 years I have been playing I have tried almost every bass string available. These strings are durable, great sounding and hold their tune very well. I love their warm yet crisp sound. You must give these strings a try.

Comments about D'Addario NYXL50105 Gauge NPS Long-Scale Bass Strings:

Great strings. Went on quick and stayed in tune from the get go. You can definitely see and feel the extra quality of these strings. They do cost more than other strings. The differences arnt huge but they are there. I'd say try them and decide if you think the money's worth it. I use them on guitar too and like them even more on guitar than bass.

        Comments about D'Addario NYXL50105 Gauge NPS Long-Scale Bass Strings:

        I saw reviews and demos for these on youtube and they piqued my interest. I, being a longtime D'Addario customer, was willing to trust something new under their name. I put them on my MIM Fender Jazz Bass. Loud, balanced, good overtones and harmonics. Very pleased.

          ive' been using pro steels and rotosounds on my jazz bass's. these strings blow both of them out of the water. great tension, full low bottom end not muddy. great midrange .louder but clean and articulate. really makes the bass sing . worth the bucks
