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!

DAddario XL Balanced Tension Bass Strings Features

  • 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. All XL strings are precision wound on our exclusive digitally-controlled machines, ensuring each string has excellent intonation, clear fundamentals, and unparalleled consistency. 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.

Just What I Needed for Drop C
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I happily used Ernie Ball strings for years (and still do, on some instruments), but when I started tuning my four-strings CGCF, I couldn't find an Ernie Ball set that agreed with the new tuning. I tried DR's DDTs, specifically made for low tunings; they worked with the tuning, but the feel and tone of steel have never done it for me personally. I didn't care for D'Addarios in the long-ago time before I settled on Ernie Balls, as they seemed to tinny when new, and went dead quickly; but since they have developed a string recycling program in that time, I thought I could give them a second chance, and I'm really glad I did. I get the bright-enough-but-not-tinny sound right out of the package that I always liked with Ernie Ball strings, but at a gauge and tension that work with how I tune and play these days. Just what I needed.

Great Strings!
What is your 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.
