Product Description

Comprised of mathematically optimized string gauge combinations, the DAddario XL Balanced Tension Nickel Wound Bass Strings provide oustanding control and playing comfort. Combined with the distinctive bright, booming tones of XL nickel wound strings, each set offers greater dynamic control and a more consistent feel between strings for evenly balanced bending, fretting, plucking and slapping. The XL Balanced Tension strings deliver a universally appealing and versatile tone for all playing styles.

D'Addario Balanced Tension XL strings are the solution to a problem long associated with traditional strings. When you look closely at the tensions in a traditional set, they can vary dramatically between strings, which can result in some strings feeling tighter or looser in relation to the others. These differences in tension can contribute to players altering their techniques, consciously or subconsciously, to compensate for these variances. The XL Balanced Tension bass strings eliminate that problem!

  • Balanced Tension sets allow for evenly balanced bending, fretting, plucking and slapping
  • Round wound with nickelplated steel for distinctive bright tone
  • Environmentally friendly, corrosion resistant packaging for strings that are always fresh
  • Made in the U.S.A. for the highest quality and performance
D'Addario XL Nickel Wound Electric Bass strings are world-renowned as The Player's Choice amongst bass players of all genres and styles.

Each string is wound with a nickelplated steel wrap wire known for distinctive bright tone with excellent magnetic output delivering a universally appealing and versatile tone for all playing styles.

Great Strings!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
As good or better than any brand at any cost! They last and last, sound fantastic, and they just make my bass sound great, with thunderous low end, but great tone on the mids and ringing high notes. Over 35 years of bass playing and I've tried them all, save your money because the best is right here.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I had neglected changing my strings for a long time, so I thought I would try these even tension strings. First practice and everyone heard the difference! Commenting on my new tone! For medium to light strings, they sure do slam on my Spector and Tradition alike. I just don't use any other brand, and there sure seems to be something to this even tension approach.
How is the feel of the strings?
Round wound, feels like most any round wound.
How did the strings affect your tone?
For Medium to light, they slam and punch their way to the front. Great for the heaviest hard rock, to jazz.
Would you recommend this product to another player?
I highly recommend these strings to anyone within the sound of my voice! Don't waste money, these are as good as it gets!
