EXPPBB170 Acoustic Bass EXP 40-100 Long Scale


An micro-fine layer of EXP Coating is bonded to the phosphor bronze wrap wire which is then wound onto the hex-shaped core wire. The result is a built-in barrier against the corrosion and wear that can quickly sap the life out of your strings and your sound . EXP strings have a natural round wound feel and extra-bright tone that lasts three to four times longer than traditional bass strings.




Phosphor Bronze Wound


D'Addario Phopshor Bronze Acoustic Bass strings are acclaimed worldwide for their great, long-lasting tone. Phosphor Bronze was introduced to string making by D'Addario in 1974 and has become synonymous with warm and bright, nicely balanced acoustic tone.






Chromes Flat Wound


D'Addario Chromes Flatwound Bass strings are famed for their smooth feel and warm, mellow tone. The strings are wound using an outer flattened, "ribbon" wire which is then polished to an incredibly smooth finish. Chromes deliver a deep, rich low bottom end that make them "the" flat wound choice of Jazz, R&B, and Pop musicians.




Half Rounds


D'Addario Half Round bass strings are wound with pure nickel, then precision ground, leaving the outer surface smooth and "semi-flat," while retaining the flexibility of round wound strings. They retain round wound brightness and sustain thanks to our exclusive "heat treating" process.

EFX170 D’Addario FlexSteels

D’Addario FlexSteels deliver the unique combination of flexible feel, optimized for slap and finger-style playing coupled with a coveted deep and round tone with just the right amount of punch and bite. A harmonic-rich steel alloy with precisely formulated core-to-wrap diameters wound to the most precise specifications delivers this singular tone and feel with unsurpassed consistency and extra-long string life.

 

FlexSteels deliver the bright sound of steel strings but with less of the harshness on the fingers some players associate with using this material. This is achieved by changing the core to wrap ratio (i.e. using a thinner hex core wire) which makes the strings more flexible. FlexSteels are the brightest sounding bass strings D’Addario produce.

EXL170BT D’Addario XLs Nickel Wound Balanced Tension

D'Addario EXL170BT Balanced Tension bass guitar sets are comprised of mathematically optimized string gauge combinations, resulting in greater 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.

 

In a standard EXL170 regular light gauge set the tension on each string varies, this means that players must adjust their technique depending on which string they’re playing. By altering the gauges included in the EXL170BT set D’Addario have been able to create a set with more even tension across all strings, thus giving the whole register of the instrument a more consistent feel.
