D'Addario - Making strings for over 300 years

Behind every set of D'Addario strings are over three centuries of fine craftsmanship. The D'Addario family tradition began in the tiny town of Salle, Italy in 1680 where they made assorted instrument strings for over two hundred years before relocating to New York in 1905. As the modern string making industry began to develop, the D'Addario family emerged as innovators by designing the winding machine most string makers still use today. And while their techniques have modernized, the pride that goes into each set of strings dates back to the D'Addario family's earliest roots.

Daddario EXL 170 twin pack

Great strings for my music man stingray and music man sterling bass. They have a good balanced feel and tone that will cut. I will definitely get these again. Plus its a twin pack for an amazing price!

Great sound and value

I've used these on my P/J Squire bass(have gone through 2 sets). They stay in tune very well and sound great. My P/J has Geezer Butler pickups and I'm running through a Fender 200 Rumble with 2-2x12" cabs. The three way combination makes the strings ring at top and thunder at lows. I use Finger Ease spray to lengthen the strings life and lubricate the fret board. Anyhow I'm sold on these strings for their value, long life, and sound. Won't use anything else
Music background: Been playing guitar/bass since late 60's. Experienced

D'addario Nickels...Rock.

Put a set of these on the PBass. WoW. Not quite as bright as Steel, but, they are awesome. Growl is there. Clarity. Punch. Everything I've read and watched about these strings is...True. I love Rotosound, Blue Steels and will continue to use them but these puppies will be in the rotation. Excellent strings.

It's hard to know what strings to buy, so many choices. I bought these for my Precision bass (also from Sweetwater) because Bobby Vega said (in his Bass Player column) this is what he puts on his Precision. There was a huge difference from the Fender strings that came on my new bass. Gone was the unwanted harmonics over-rings up the E string. Every note on the neck is now clear and pure and only that one note. The amplified sound is easy to control from understated thump to POP!. Great strings, and highly recommended for the Precision bass.
